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.

Frye (finger) started Friday against the Pelicans. He scored two points (1-6 FG, 0-4 3Pt) and added two rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes.Despite dislocating his finger in the last game before the All-Star break, Frye was able to recover and not miss a game from the injury. By playing, however, Frye may have ended up hurting fantasy players, who would have probably received better production elsewhere. Until Frye recovers from his current slump - he's scored in double figures just twice in his past 11 games, despite averaging 17 minutes per game - he can be safely ignored in most formats.

Frye moved into the starting lineup Friday, scoring seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and adding two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes against the Lakers.

Despite the starting nod, Frye was ineffective and played only limited minutes. Frye replaced guard Evan Fournier in the starting lineup, which is an indication that new interim head coach James Borrego is still tinkering with his lineups and his rotation. Monitor this situation over the next couple of weeks, since whoever does settle in as Borrego's fifth starter will experience a significant boost in fantasy value.

Frye will come off the bench Saturday versus the Mavericks, the Magic's official site reports.

Such a move was forecast when Frye began the second half of Thursday's loss to the Bucks off the bench. Moreover, he's averaging just 14 minutes per game over the past two outings, which erases any fantasy viability that the 31-year-old picked up this season. In his place, Tobias Harris will get the nod at power forward.

Frye began the second half of Monday's game on the bench, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The reason for the move is not clear at this time, but the situation surrounding Frye's minutes is certainly something to keep tabs on. Frye is struggling mightily this month - 34.0% FG, 35.6% 3Pt - but is still averaging just under 29 minutes per game.

Frye had one of his best games of the season against the Grizzlies on Friday as he put up 17 points (5-12 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and three blocks in 38 minutes.

Frye has struggled shooting the ball this season, although Friday's performance was decent enough as he also managed to compile a well-rounded box score. He seems to have regained his spot in the starting lineup moving forward and is on the borderline of deserving a roster spot in standard-sized leagues.

Frye converted 8-of-35 shots in his last six games. He stipulated, "Don't worry about me. I'm the last person to worry about. I'm going to get into a rhythm quick." Coach Jacque Vaughn backed up his power forward's claim, reiterating, "I don't think my confidence is any less than it was when he first got here. If not, I wouldn't be drawing plays up for him."

Frye refuted talk that the recent elbow/tricep injury in his shooting arm is to blame for the slump. He was happy with his shot selection in his recent game, where he shot 1-of-10, since the shots were halfway down before rattling out. His accuracy from downtown dipped below 40 percent for the first time this season, equaling his field goal percentage in the process. More telling of his dip in fantasy value are the 14 free-throw attempts and 13 offensive rebounds in 1,142 minutes this season, career-lows and league-lows for his position and minute's tier.
