Frye (illness) will be active and available to play Wednesday, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Frye missed Sunday's game due to illness, which allowed Andrew Nicholson to get the start with Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) also out. Now healthy, Frye will be available off the bench against the Hawks, while Dedmon gets the start in the frontcourt alongside Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris.

Frye came down with an illness ahead of Sunday's game against the Nuggets and will not ultimately take the court, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Frye should be considered day-to-day as Andrew Nicholson takes over at power forward in the starting lineup. The next opportunity for Frye to take the court will be against the Hawks on Wednesday.

Frye will start Wednesday's contest at Dallas, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Because Dedmon is sitting out Wednesday due to a sore ankle, Frye has been afforded the opportunity to return to the starting five. In 49 nods this season, Frye has averaged 8.4 points (on 40 percent shooting), 4.6 rebounds, 2.1 three-pointers, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 29 minutes.

Frye returned to the bench and scored three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt) grabbed a single rebound in 19 minutes against the Pacers on Tuesday.

With the return of Nikola Vucevic to the starting lineup, Frye was delegated to a bench role, where he struggled Tuesday. He could reenter the starting lineup in place of Dewayne Dedmon eventually, but the Magic currently have too many healthy forwards in the rotation for any of them to have consistent fantasy value right now.

Frye was replaced by Maurice Harkless in the second-half starting lineup Sunday against the Celtics.

Frye played 16 minutes one game after scoring a season-high 22 points. He doesn't fit coach James Borrego's defensive scheme, starting only because Nikola Vucevic (ankle) is sidelined. The shots and opportunity are there; he's just been overshadowed by Dewayne Dedmon's defense and Victor Oladipo's offensive explosion.

Frye started in place of Nikola Vucevic (ankle) Friday. He scored 22 points (7-11 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and three blocks in 35 minutes against the Kings.

Frye is in the middle of a disappointing season, but he stepped up in a big way Friday. If Vucevic continues to miss time, Frye makes for an interesting flier option.

Frye will be back in the starting lineup Friday with Nikola Vucevic (ankle) sidelined, the Orlando Sentinel's Josh Robbins reports.

Frye was relegated to the bench Wednesday in favor of Dwayne Dedmon, but now with Vucevic out, Frye will get back with the starters. He has been seeing 14-24 minutes per game of late, which rarely allows him to prove useful in most fantasy formats.

Frye will come off the bench Wednesday against the Suns, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Dwayne Dedmon, a superior defender, will get the nod at power forward as Frye shifts to the bench. Frye has started the past nine games, but averaged only 7.2 points and 1.9 rebounds while shooting 40 percent from the field over that span.

Frye is averaging 17.6 minutes per game as the starting power forward for head coach James Borrego.

Frye has been splitting minutes with Dewayne Dedmon, Kyle O'Quinn, and Tobias Harris ever since Jacque Vaughn was fired. James Borrego has shifted the focus to defense, preferring to play Harris at power forward and utilize Willie Green or Evan Fournier in smaller lineups.
