Chuck Hayes has been cleared to play after the Kings voided his four-year, $21 million contract because of concerns about his heart, according to his agents. The Sacramento Bee reported on Thursday that Hayes had been diagnosed with Pericarditis, inflammation of the sac that surrounds the heart. But Hayes sought further testing at the renowned Cleveland Clinic and underwent "a full day of exhaustive testing and exams" on Wednesday, according to a statement released by BDA Sports.

"Their recommendation is that he can continue to play professional basketball without any concerns," the statement read. "I have to see what teams are interested still. It’s back to the drawing board, block one, lets go on this merry-go-round," said Hayes to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
