Channing Frye will return to the bench for Monday's game against the Warriors.
J.R. Smith (knee) is back in the starting lineup following a one-game absence, so Frye will be lucky to see his minutes in the teens today. He's not a realistic target in any format. Mon, Dec 25, 2017 02:32:00 PM

Channing Frye was invisible in the starting lineup on Thursday vs. the Bulls, scoring two points with four rebounds, one assist and one block in 15 minutes.

The Cavs went with a traditional lineup with J.R. Smith (knee) out, but Frye didn't take advantage of his opportunity with just two shots on the night. He can be left on the waiver wire, especially with the Cavs off until Christmas.

Channing Frye will start Thursday's game in place of J.R. Smith (sore left knee).

Frye will join Kevin Love, Jae Crowder, LeBron James and Jose Calderon in the starting unit, as Cleveland opts to go big vs. the Bulls tonight. It sounds like Smith is day-to-day so this doesn't help Frye long-term, but he's worth a glance in DFS thanks to his rock-bottom price.

Channing Frye had another forgettable game on Sunday with five points, one assist and one 3-pointer in nine minutes off the Cavs' bench.

Frye flirted with fantasy relevance in mid-November, but he's a liability now that Tristan Thompson is active. He's averaging 7.7 minutes over the Cavs' past three games and it wouldn't be shocking if he eventually drops out of the rotation entirely.

Channing Frye came off the bench for five points, three rebounds and three assists vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

Frye recently dislocated his right middle finger, but it didn't seem to bother him in 25 minutes on Monday, and he shot 2-of-4 in 18 minutes again tonight. The veteran big man has scored double-digit points twice all season and he hasn't even been useful as a 3-point specialist -- he's a combined 0-of-5 from deep in his past four games.

Channing Frye (finger) will play Monday vs. the Bulls.

Frye dislocated his right middle finger on Saturday, but the fact that he'll be getting out there for a matchup against the 3-18 Bulls suggests that this minor finger thing will be a non-issue moving forward. Frye gets minutes in the teens on most nights and can't be considered a viable target in most leagues.

Channing Frye (finger) is being listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Bulls.

Frye dislocated his right middle finger during Saturday's win over the Grizzlies, and given Cleveland's opponent tonight, there's a good chance he'll be cheering from the sidelines in business attire. Assuming he's out, Frye's minutes will be divvied up between Jae Crowder and Jeff Green, which means very little in fantasy hoops.

Channing Frye dislocated his right middle finger on Saturday.

He got taped up today and he could've returned, so Frye didn't break anything. Frye finished with six points, four rebounds and four fouls in 14 minutes today. He doesn't have much fantasy value.

Channing Frye (hand) went to the locker room in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

He make have dislocated a finger and is probably done for the night. The Cavs are likely going to try and go small the rest of the way in this close game. Jeff Green figures to benefit most.

Coach Ty Lue said he has to play Channing Frye more.

When a team like the Cavs have to play Channing Frye more, that's probably not a great sign. They're still trying to figure out how to get over the loss of Tristan Thompson, so maybe they don't go super small as much. Frye isn't really a great pickup unless you're desperate.

Channing Frye scored nine points with five rebounds, two blocks, one steal and three triples in 25 minutes vs. the Knicks on Monday.

Frye was instrumental in Cleveland's second-half comeback, as he played down the stretch over Kevin Love and was a +20 during his time on the floor. Frye was only averaging 6.5 minutes per game prior to Monday, so he's not worth adding anywhere until he becomes a consistent part of the rotation.

Channing Frye finished with five points and a rebound in eight minutes off the bench Saturday against the Magic.

Frye didn't get a lot of run against his former team, but he made 2-of-3 from the field and connected on his only 3-pointer try of the evening. He isn't likely to see much of the floor as long as everyone stays healthy in Cleveland, and Tristan Thompson shifting to the backup center spot did Frye no favors.

Channing Frye scored six points with 10 rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes on Friday.

He got the start with Kevin Love (general tightness) not playing today. Frye is not going to see much playing time as the Cavs will be shifting Tristan Thompson to the backup five spot, so minutes up front will be hard to come by.

The Cavs are reportedly shopping Channing Frye.

Frye reportedly helped bring the Cavs locker room together, but his on-court impact with Cleveland during the Finals was minimal. Cleveland likely won't get much of a return for Frye alone, but he could be included as a throw-in piece in a larger deal.

Channing Frye went 5-of-7 from deep en route to 18 points on Wednesday, as the Cavaliers cruised to a 2-0 lead in their second-round series vs. Toronto.

Frye benefited from non-existent defense from Jonas Valanciunas early, finishing 6-of-9 from the field overall with five rebounds and one assist in just 18 minutes. The Cavaliers scored a playoff franchise-high 125 points tonight -- they got 39 points from LeBron James, with solid contributions from Kyrie Irving (22 points) and Iman Shumpert (14 points).
