Channing Frye scored 19 points with four rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.
It's by far his most points scored as a Laker with only 19 points scored combined before tonight. He is playing power forward and had been playing 19.0 minutes per game in his previous two. With Kyle Kuzma playing SF, Frye could continue to flirt with 20 minutes. This will probably be his best game as a Laker this season, though. Apr 5 - 1:15 AM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) returned to action on Monday vs. the Pistons with four points and nothing else in seven minutes.

Coach Luke Walton said he was only going to play Frye for a handful of minutes and he kept his word. Even with the Lakers shorthanded, we don't see Frye's role growing too much.
Mar 26 - 9:50 PM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) will play a "few minutes" on Monday vs. the Pistons according to coach Luke Walton.

You're obviously not going to trust him in fantasy lineups any time in the near future.
Mar 26 - 5:49 PM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) is probable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

Frye hasn't appeared in a game since February 14th, but was available Thursday night vs. New Orleans. He may check in on Saturday, but should be left on waivers in all fantasy formats.
Mar 24 - 9:21 AM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) is available for Thursday's game vs. the Pelicans.

He's been out since Feb. 14 and just returned to practice on Wednesday. He's not a lock to be in the rotation right away and may see a handful of minutes at best.
Mar 22 - 12:31 PM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) practiced on Wednesday.

It's nice to see he's getting close after his appendectomy last month, but Frye is not expected to play on Thursday.
Mar 21 - 2:57 PM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Frye, who had an appendectomy back in mid-February, was cleared for on-court, non-contact work last week, but is not yet ready to return to game action.
Mar 13 - 10:06 AM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) has been cleared for on-court, non-contact work.

Frye will be evaluated again at the end of the week, but he's not exactly close to a return, and there are no guarantees that he'll have a meaningful role in the rotation even when he's fully up to speed. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 6 - 3:05 PM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) will not play for at least the next five games.

He announced he had an appendectomy over the break and the Lakers won't be in a rush to bring him back.
Feb 22 - 4:44 PM

Channing Frye said he had an appendectomy.

"I’m pretty sure that i got my appendix removed I’ll be able to dunk at least [three times] a month now," Frye said on Twitter. This probably explains why Frye was out for personal reasons on Thursday and now he’ll be targeting an early March return.
Feb 17 - 5:27 PM

Channing Frye (personal) is not with the team and will not play on Thursday against the Wolves.

He did see 11 minutes on Wednesday, but garbage time was a factor. Frye is expected to play with the Lakers and may not be bought out after all. The Lakers and Frye still have two weeks to decide.
Feb 15 - 7:37 PM

Coach Luke Walton said that he expects both Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye to join the Lakers in Dallas and to be available to play Saturday night vs. the Mavs.

It appears the Frye will stick with the Lakers, as opposed to being bought out. The Lakers have plenty of depth along their frontline, which will make it difficult for Frye to earn consistent minutes over the second half of the season. He can be left on waivers.
Feb 9 - 9:52 AM

Channing Frye has been traded to the Lakers.

The Cavs swap out an older, floor-spacing Frye for a younger, more athletic Larry Nance. The Lakers probably aren't done here, so it's tough to see what Frye's value will be. Either way, there's no reason to grab him off the waivers. L.A. reportedly wants to keep Frye, but there's still a chance he'll be bought out.
Feb 8 - 12:16 PM

Channing Frye played 10 minutes vs. the Magic on Tuesday with five points, two rebounds and one triple.

Frye did have a couple nice games when Kevin Love (hand) went down, but this was his second dud in a row. The Cavaliers like to use a hot-hand approach for their second unit, and Jeff Green outplayed him tonight with 12 points in 24 minutes. Both players are only worth monitoring in deeper leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:39 PM

Channing Frye made 6-of-9 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs en route to 16 points on Wednesday, with four rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist, one steal and one block.

The Cavs reportedly don't want to trade Frye because he can help fill the gap left by Kevin Love's absence for 6-8 weeks. He logged 21 minutes tonight and did his damage both from distance and in the paint -- when asked about his success as a roll-man, he replied, "Normally [teams] catch wind of that play after one or two times. It kept working. I'm going to have to get new shoes. I wore the tread out tonight." His real-world value far exceeds his fantasy appeal, however, and he's just a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
