Suns’ Frye hints at return to court with photo

With a recent Instagram post as our guide, it appears Suns forward Channing Frye may return to the court this season.

Channing, who missed last season with an enlarged heart, has Phoenix fans buzzing after posting a picture of himself (in uniform) delivering a fist pump, accompanied by one word …  “YEP!”

Soon after Frye’s seeming declaration appeared, now-former teammate Jared Dudley had this response on Twitter:

We’re assuming J.D. meant to type “endured” rather than “ensured.”

Anyway, if Frye can play this season, the Suns will have at least one player capable of consistently spacing the floor. And he would certainly help as a veteran leader in what might be an otherwise very young frontcourt, particularly if big man Marcin Gortat is eventually shipped out of town, as has been speculated.

Frye has not yet clarified the meaning of his post, but in the meantime, he’s doing nothing to quell the kudos on social media from Dudley and many others.
