Channing Frye was back from a personal leave on Thursday but missed both his shots and finished with five points and five rebounds in 15 minutes.
He missed three straight games after the death of his father, but not even garbage time in a blowout could save him tonight. Frye was playing pretty well before his absence, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues if you need a big man who can hit 3-pointers. Dec 1 - 11:04 PM

Channing Frye (personal) will play against the Clippers on Thursday.

Frye had been on bereavement leave after the death of his father, but has returned to the team and will be active on Thursday. While the 33-year-old is capable of a big game now and then, his only fantasy value comes as a three-point specialist.
Dec 1 - 11:43 AM

Channing Frye will not play Tuesday at Milwaukee but will return Thursday when the Cavs host the Clippers.

Frye's father passed away on Thanksgiving and he has been away from the team since. Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson will likely see additional playing time on Tuesday night, before Frye returns on Thursday and reclaims his 18-plus minutes.
Nov 29 - 6:41 PM

It is possible that Channing Frye will arrive in Milwaukee in time to play on Tuesday.

Frye has been with his family since his father passed away last week. Ty Lue said Tuesday morning that he was unsure if Frye would be able to play on Tuesday. Check back for an update.
Nov 29 - 11:17 AM

Channing Frye (personal) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

Sadly, Frye lost both his father and mother over the course of a month. Kevin Love will look to continue his terrific play on Sunday and should see extended minutes. Tristan Thompson, Richard Jefferson and Mike Dunleavy might also see increased opportunities.
Nov 26 - 2:19 PM

Channing Frye (personal) is not with the team and will not play Friday night vs. the Mavericks.

Frye's father passed away on Thanksgiving, and Frye has left the team to be with his family. It has been a heartbreaking couple of months for Frye, who lost his mother in October. Frye is averaging 18 minutes per contest this season. Tristan Thompson, Richard Jefferson and Mike Dunleavy could all see a slight uptick in playing time while Frye is away from the team. Kevin Love, fresh off his terrific game Wednesday, will also likely see increased opportunities.

Less than a month after Channing Frye's mother passed away, he lost his father on Thanksgiving Day.

"On a day for thanks. Be thankful for the person next to you," Frye wrote on Instagram. "My father passed away today. Y’all better love on your family." He missed two games last month to mourn the loss of his mother, so his status for today's game against the Mavericks is up in the air. We're guessing he takes the day off to be with his family, and send our condolences.
Nov 25 - 5:20 AM

Channing Frye cooled off on Wednesday with eight points on 3-of-9 shooting, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes.

Frye torched the Raptors off a series of high screens on Tuesday, but he had a few things conspiring against him tonight -- LeBron James wasn't playing, and the Pacers' personnel is better suited to checking him on the perimeter. He still put up a decent line and is a fine 3-point specialist who won't hurt you anywhere.
Nov 16 - 10:08 PM

Channing Frye scored 21 points with three rebounds, one assist, one block and five 3-pointers in 20 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

He was 7-of-10 from the field and 5-of-8 from the field, and this comes on the heels of a 20-point effort against the Hornets on Sunday. Frye is enjoying life with J.R. Smith (ankle) on the bench, so give him a look on Wednesday vs. the Pacers if Smith sits out again. Frye's long-term outlook still isn't great.
Nov 15 - 9:55 PM

Channing Frye torched the Hornets during Sunday's 100-93 Cavs' victory, scoring 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting while knocking down a season-high six triples to go with three boards and three blocks.

The Hornets presented a nice matchup for Frye, and he saw some increased opportunity on the offensive end with J.R. Smith (ankle) in street clothes. Charlotte kept leaving him wide open from the beyond the arc, and Frye made them pay dearly, but he's not going to be this good on most nights. He's basically just a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Nov 13 - 6:08 PM

Channing Frye came off the bench to hit 5-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers, finishing with 13 points and seven rebounds in Tuesday's loss to the Hawks.

Frye has quietly scored at least 11 points in four straight games and has hit 11 3-pointers over that stretch. He's not a must-own fantasy player, but if you need a big man who can score a little and hit 3-pointers, he deserves a look off your waiver wire.
Nov 8 - 9:48 PM

Channing Frye played just 15 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds and a steal on Thursday.

He's averaging 11 points, three rebounds and two 3-pointers over his last two games, so just keep an eye on him if you're in a deep league.
Nov 3 - 11:07 PM

Channing Frye (personal) has rejoined the team and will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Rockets.

Frye recently lost his mother to cancer, so our thoughts go out to him. There are no guarantees he'll actually take the court tonight.
Nov 1 - 5:23 PM

Channing Frye (personal matter) is out indefinitely and will miss at least the next two games.

Terribly sad news out of Cleveland, as we find out Frye has been excused from the team indefinitely after his mother, Karen, lost a long battle with cancer Thursday. It is obviously very difficult to predict how long Frye might be out as he deals with this heartbreaking situation.
Oct 28 - 12:28 PM

Channing Frye (personal matter) is doubtful to play Friday night vs. Toronto.

Frye did not travel with the Cavs to Toronto. He was excused to attend to a personal matter. He is considered doubtful to rejoin the team in time for the Raptors game Friday night. Frye played 14 minutes in the Cavs season opener on Tuesday. Tristan Thompson will likely see an increase in minutes if Frye does not play. Chris Anderson could also see some extra minutes as well.
