Thanks! My initial thought was he had to know.
As for players playing with heart conditions, it depends on the type and they are watched like a hawk. Most with mild conditions can play as long as the proper precautions are taken.
Also, yes team physicians do catch these conditions. Gerald Green of the Celtics underwent heart surgery after his team physical this year. He will be playing next season.
Pure speculation on my part but based on what has surfaced from Cheraponov's death, the team doctors weren't skilled enough to diagnose and treat this condition properly.
