According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers will be without the services of forward/center Channing Frye for an indefinite period of time in order for him to deal with the death of his mother, who has passed away from cancer.
The 33-year-old veteran didn’t make the trip to Toronto, though the team had only previously referred to his absence as dealing with a “personal matter.”

Frye isn’t expected back until next week, which means that he’s also likely to miss Saturday night’s home game against the Orlando Magic. The next game on the team’s schedule is on Tuesday against the Houston Rockets.
