Phoenix Suns forward Channing Frye announced via Twitter that he will be playing this season after sitting out last season due to an enlarged heart.
let me rephrase that. I’ll be back next year playing for the Phx suns. I’m happy to be healthy and have a opportunity to keeping playing!

Frye, the veteran, will be able to help this young Suns team as they are going through a transition period with a new head coach in Jeff Hornacek. The last time Frye played was back in the 2011-12 season. During that season, he averaged 10.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game.
He is also a three point shooter. Frye shot 34.6 percent from the three point line in the 2011-12 season. Over his entire career, Frye is a 39 percent three point shooter. Does this re-acquisition of Channing Frye means that the Suns will win more games? No not at all.
But it is great to see him back on the court. It is always good to see a player like Frye coming back from a diagnosis such as an enlarged heart and proving once again that he can play professional basketball.
