Channing Frye: Wraps up career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye played seven minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 124-97 loss to the Hornets, finishing with 10 points (3-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one turnover and no other statistics.

Frye announced in March that this would be his last season in the NBA, so the Cavaliers included him in the rotation for their final two contests as a token of appreciation. Since he's on an expiring deal, Frye's retirement will become official at the close of the league year this summer. The 35-year-old wraps up his 13-year career with averages of 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.0 assist in 22.2 minutes per game across 890 regular-season appearances with the Knicks, Trail Blazers, Suns, Magic, Lakers and Cavaliers.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: To retire after this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye will retire from the NBA following the 2018-19 campaign, per his Twitter account.

Frye is seeing only 9.5 minutes per game across 29 appearances this season, and it's the first time he's averaged single-digit minutes. The former eighth overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft, Frye won an NBA Championship in 2015-16 with the LeBron-led Cavaliers.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Another DNP-Coach's Decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye did not see the floor during Saturday's 112-107 win over the Grizzlies.

Frye has earned a grand total of 10 minutes across his last four appearances while not seeing the floor in seven of the last 11 games. The recent return of Kevin Love has buried Frye on the depth chart. Moreover, Tristan Thompson (foot) still hasn't rejoined the rotation and has been out for over a month now. At this point, Frye can be avoided across all formats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye will come off the bench Friday against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With Rodney Hood (Achilles) back in the starting lineup (on a minutes limit), Frye will return to his usual role off the bench. In 16 bench appearances, the veteran is averaging 3.2 points in 7.6 minutes.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Returns to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye is coming off the bench Saturday against the Hawks.

Frye drew a start Friday against the Heat, but coach Larry Drew has changed his tune again and will start Larry Nance for Saturday's matchup. When coming off the bench, Frye has averaged 2.6 points and 1.0 rebound in 5.6 minutes.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Starting Friday vs. Heat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye will start at center Friday against the Heat, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.

With Ante Zizic (knee) out, coach Larry Drew will opt to start Frye at center against Hassan Whiteside. In three prior starts this season, Frye has averaged 4.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 16.7 minutes.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Plays just five minutes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye produced just three points, one rebound, and one steal in five minutes during Sunday's 128-105 loss to Philadelphia.

Frye moved back to the bench Sunday and ended playing just five minutes. Despite the fact that the move was likely matchup based, this performance does emphasize how feeble his role actually is no matter his actual position within the roster. He can be ignored basically everywhere.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Will come off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Ante Zizic is moving into the starting five in an attempt to slow down Joel Embiid. Frye has drawn the previous two starts with Tristan Thompson injured. Frye's averaging 14.5 minutes in those two starts, so he could still see a similar role.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Plays 14 minutes in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye finished with nine points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and three rebounds in 14 minutes during Friday's 114-102 loss to the Bucks.

Frye drew a second straight start in the absence of Tristan Thompson (foot). Frye went scoreless in 15 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Knicks, and the 35-year-old big man is mainly a floor spacer, with Larry Nance seeing the biggest boost now that both Thompson and Kevin Love (toe) are on the shelf.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Confirmed starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye will start Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

The prevailing belief was that Larry Nance would be the natural choice to take over in the absence of Tristan Thompson, but Larry Drew will instead go with Frye, who's played double-digit minutes just once all season.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Possible starter Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye may start Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

The Cavs initially listed Larry Nance as the starter, but there are now reports that they've pivoted to Frye, which would be a surprise given his reduced role this season. If that's the case and Nance is healthy, the latter would still likely see the bulk of the minutes at the five.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Does very little in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye totaled just five points, four rebounds, and one assist in 21 minutes during Thursday's 110-103 loss to the Pistons.

Frye moved into the starting lineup, replacing Kevin Love (foot) who was sitting this one out. Despite the promotion, Frye produced very little from a fantasy perspective, basically providing floor spacing and another body on the floor. It is unclear whether Love will be forced to miss additional time but even if that is the case, Frye still warrants no attention in anything but the deepest of formats.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye is starting at power forward for the injured Kevin Love (foot) during Thursday's game against the Pistons, Fred McLeod of Fox Sports Ohio reports.

Frye will make his season debut Thursday. Last season, between the Cavaliers and Lakers, he averaged 5.0 points and 2.5 rebounds in 13.1 minutes. It's unclear if he'll be given more work Thursday, or if he's starting simply for floor spacing purposes.

Cavaliers' Channing Frye: Inks deal with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Cavaliers, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Frye played 44 games with the Cavs last season -- 4.8 points in 12.4 minutes on 33.3 percent shooting from deep -- before being traded to the Lakers, where he suited up for just nine contests. It seems unlikely he'll garner a bigger role this season, as he just turned 35 years old.

Lakers' Channing Frye: Wraps up 13th NBA season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye averaged 5.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists across 53 games played with the Lakers during the 2017-18 season.

Frye wrapped up his 13th NBA season by shooting 49.1 percent from the floor and 89.5 percent from the charity stripe, two percentages that were his best in five years. The former first-round pick with the Knicks did see his minutes decline to 13.1 minutes per game though as the Lakers elected to go more with their youth. It's likely that Frye can be productive for at least one more season and he will be a free agent this summer.

Lakers' Channing Frye: Locked in with shot Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye registered 19 points (8-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 122-112 overtime win over the Spurs.

The veteran sharpshooter was in vintage form Wednesday, producing a season - and bench-high scoring total on a blistering 88.9 percent success rate from the floor. Frye has mostly been logging DNP-CDs since his arrival in Los Angeles, but he's now enjoyed a regular role in the frontcourt rotation over the last four games while logging between 15 and 26 minutes in those contests. If his role remains similar for the Lakers' last four games, he certainly has some value as a DFS punt play.

Lakers' Channing Frye: Will be available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye (abdomen) will be available for Thursday's game against the Pelicans, Bill Oram of The Orange County Register reports.

Frye went through practice Wednesday, and he will now suit up for the first time since mid-February despite the fact that he was considered doubtful to play. However, given Frye's lengthy absence after undergoing an appendectomy, it's unlikely the stretch four will see much, if any time on the floor Thursday night.

Lakers' Channing Frye: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye (abdomen) went through Wednesday's practice but should be considered doubtful for Thursday's contest against New Orleans, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

Frye continues to work his way back from an appendectomy that he underwent about a month ago. The fact that he's been re-integrated into practice is a great sign for his progress and potential to play soon. That said, it's unlikely his return will take place Thursday.

Lakers' Channing Frye: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frye (abdomen) will remain out for Monday's game against the Pacers, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Frye underwent an appendectomy roughly a month ago and continues to be without any sort of timetable for a return. He'll be evaluated on a game-to-game basis for the time being, with his next shot to take the court coming on Thursday against the Pelicans.
