Having already lost big man Channing Frye to heart issues this season, the Suns are now down another.

Jermaine O’Neal didn’t suit up for two games last Wednesday and Thursday because he was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. After feeling shortness of breath and tightness in the chest out of nowhere last Monday night, the Suns center woke up at around 4 a.m. feeling like he was “having a heart attack.”
