Former Cavalier Frye undergoes appendectomy

Former Cavalier Channing Frye underwent an appendectomy in Cleveland on Friday night.

Turns out, the “personal reasons” that caused Channing Frye to not travel with his Los Angeles Lakers teammates to Toronto for a game Thursday night were indeed personal — they were of the health-related variety.

Frye joked about being able to be a more prolific dunker with his appendix having been taken out.

Frye, traded along with Isaiah Thomas and a 2018 first-round draft choice by the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Lakers before the NBA trade deadline Feb. 8, played in only one game for the Lakers since the deal. He averaged 4.8 points and 2.5 rebounds a game with Cleveland.

He sat out the entire 2012-13 season after being diagnosed with an enlarged heart. However, he has played in 70 games or more in every season since.

Frye will be an unrestricted free agent after this season.
