The Orlando Magic will be without the services of forward Channing Frye for the remainder of their game against the New York Knicks due to a dislocated left index finger, the team announced. Frye hurt his finger early in the third quarter while defending Knicks forward Lou Amundson on this play that resulted in a dunk for Langston Galloway.
Prior to the injury, Frye had recorded one basket, a three-pointer, and one foul in 10 minutes of play. Frye was replaced in the lineup by Kyle O`Quinn.
With the week long All-Star break beginning for the team following the conclusion of their game with the Knicks, it's a somewhat ideal time for an injury to occur. With the time off, Frye could potentially end up not missing anytime due to the injury, his second major injury of the season after a sprained MCL during the preseason. Any updates on Frye's status will be passed along following the game.
