Channing Frye out 2-3 weeks with shoulder injury

Phoenix Suns forward Channing Frye today underwent a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center that revealed a dislocated right shoulder.  Frye is expected to miss two-to-three weeks pending ongoing evaluation from Suns orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Carter.

Frye sustained the injury with 6:28 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Suns’ Sunday game against the Thunder in Oklahoma City.

In his second season with the Suns, Frye is averaging a career-high tying 12.3 points and a career-high 6.6 rebounds in 61 games in 2010-11, one of only two Suns who has appeared in every game this season (Dudley).  The University of Arizona product has made more three-pointers than any NBA player since the beginning of the 2009-10 season (304), and made back-to-back game-winning jumpers Feb. 27 at Indiana and Feb. 28 at New Jersey on the Suns’ just-completed six-game road trip.
