Channing Frye Injury: Suns Forward Undergoes Successful Shoulder Surgery

Only a few days into the offseason Phoenix Suns forward Channing Frye wasted no time getting his required surgery out of the way, undergoing a successful procedure to repair a 'sublexed' or partial dislocation of his right shoulder on Wednesday.

Dr. Lewis Yocum performed the surgery in Anaheim, CA under the recomendation of team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Carter.

Frye suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Suns' April 21 game against the Denver Nuggets at the US Airways Center, sitting out the rest of the season because of it. He had a similar injury last season that forced him out of seven games, but it was serious enough to merit a surgical procedure this time around.

Frye averaged 10.5 points and 5.9 rebounds for Phoenix this season, the third straight season that he has averaged double-digits in points.
