HoopsHype Channing Frye rumors


February 24, 2015 Updates

During a routine physical prior to the 2012-13 season, Frye was found to have irregularities in his heartbeat. Further testing and several nervous days later determined that Frye had a dilated cardiomyopathy, also known as an enlarged heart caused by a virus. Frye, a member of the Phoenix Suns at the time, feared that his basketball career was over at the tender age of 29. ``Anything that has to do with the heart is scary,’’ recalled Frye, now 31. ``The first thing I thought about was my own well-being and the second thing was whether I’d ever be able to play basketball again. That part of it was rough.’’ NBA.com

It still seems like a long shot that he’ll play in the Orlando Magic’s season opener against the New Orleans Pelicans tonight, but Channing Frye isn’t dismissing the possibility. Frye sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee on Oct. 2 and didn’t play at all during the preseason. Frye said his knee feels “fine.” “I can do everything,” Frye said before the Magic began their shootaround at Smoothie King Center minutes ago. Orlando Sentinel

Channing Frye Don't try to forge it. My signature is worth at least five dollars on eBay. It's a "C" and an "F" and then "Channing" … there's too many n's in Channing. And then there's an "e" and a "y" in there somewhere. And then my number because people are like who is this. Oh, its number 8. [Describing the large dot on the "I" in his first name}: Long story short, both my parents work so the lady that raised me was my grandma. And she was a huge Christian and so I put the "I" there for an angel because she passed away due to cancer a long time ago. Not a lot of people know that but now everybody knows it. Orlando Sentinel

That relationship is no less important in NBA 2K15's MyCareer mode. A veteran teammate takes on the mentor role with your digital self and serves as a sounding board, self-esteem builder, and occasionally as a reality check. That mentor -- if you're playing for the Suns, anyway -- is Markieff Morris. Originally, Morris revealed, that role was reserved for eight-year veteran Channing Frye. Once he signed with Orlando in the offseason, however, 2K Sports turned to the now longest-tenured Phoenix Sun for the job. "It was a lot of fun," Morris said. "It took about four hours. I sat in front of my TV, and the set up headphones and put all these cameras in front of me. I just talked and gave them facial expressions and they recorded everything." NBA.com

Magic power forward Channing Frye, recovering from a sprained knee that has caused him to miss his third preseason game, says his knee is coming along. "It feels better every day," said Frye, who sustained the injury during an Oct. 2 scrimmage when he collided with a teammate. "I was kind of a freak thing and since I've never had this type of injury, it's tough to assess what's going on." Orlando Sentinel

Projected regular-season starters Victor Oladipo and Channing Frye are out indefinitely after suffering sprained knee ligaments, Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said Monday. Oladipo, a second-year guard, sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee after landing awkwardly during a scrimmage on Friday. Frye, a free agent pickup, suffered the same injury in his left knee during a scrimmage. Both players will miss Tuesday's preseason opener against Miami. ESPN.com

Frye suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee when he bumped knees with teammate Ben Gordon during practice Thursday. Although team officials and Frye are relieved that an MRI exam didn’t show major damage, it’s unclear how severe the sprain is and it’s unclear how much time Frye will miss. Orlando Sentinel

"I don't know the severity,” Frye said this morning. “I don't really ask those questions. I feel pretty good. I know it's injured right now, but at the same time, I just want to take it day-by-day. I know it's super-cliché. But with knee things especially this time of year, I don't want anything nagging. I don't want any excuses for the year. “It’s a freak accident. It could’ve been way worse. I’m pretty impressed at how quickly they got me assessed, and now they’re starting to get me on some different things to help with it all, and I’m pretty confident that with the way I take care of my body I could be all right.” Orlando Sentinel
