Last season, a Suns team that was three games above .500 lost Channing Frye to a right-shoulder injury against Oklahoma City and went on to lose that game and four out of the next five games he missed. From there, it spiraled out of the playoff picture.
On Saturday, a Suns team that was three games above .500 lost Frye to a right-shoulder injury against Denver and went on to lose the game and now must worry about what would happen to its playoff hopes without him again.
The difference this time is that Frye suffered a subluxation rather than a dislocation, which kept him out 12 days last season. With two off days, there is a chance Frye could play Tuesday night at Utah if the swelling stays under control and he is able to regain range of motion. Frye already could hold his right arm straight out after it was popped back into joint during the Suns' 118-107 home loss to Denver.
Frye has a history with the right shoulder since first suffering an injury with the Portland Trail Blazers. Denver's Danilo Gallinari hit Frye to cause the subluxation during Saturday's second quarter.
"We'll know a lot more tomorrow from how he feels and what it is," coach Alvin Gentry said.
