UPDATE: Following up on our recent update (see below) on the status of Channing Frye, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reported Saturday that Suns GM Ryan McDonough said they should "learn in a few weeks" whether Frye will be able to return from his heart issue to ball this season.
"We're optimistic he'll be able to play," McDonough said.
Look for Frye to compete with the likes of Markieff Morris and Marcus Morris at power forward if he is cleared to return.

There is no official word yet regarding status of Channing Frye for the 2013-14 season, but there are a number of positive signs that the perimeter-oriented big man could be back on the court after missing all of last year with an enlarged heart condition called dilated cardiomyopathy.
