Report: Chuck Hayes may have serious, treatable heart condition
Chuck Hayes is not talking about the condition discovered by the Kings that led them to cancel his free agent contract. At his request, the Kings are not talking.
But some other sources talked to the Sacramento Bee.
Pericarditis is serious — potentially life threatening if ignored — but also is treatable by medication.
Hayes may well not be back for this NBA season, but if this is treatable he should be back next season. Which is good for us — the league needs more guys like Hayes who get the most out of their talent and who relish doing the little things right.
