PHOENIX – The Phoenix Suns will be without overtime hero Channing Frye for two-to-three weeks, pending ongoing evaluation from Suns orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Carter. Frye underwent a MRI Monday that revealed a dislocated right shoulder.

The starting forward sustained the injury with 6:28 left in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Thunder. After Frye’s exit, the Suns went on to lose in overtime 122-118.

The team completed their six-game road trip Sunday night, which included back-to-back game-winning jumpers by Frye at Indiana on Feb. 27 and at New Jersey on Feb. 28. Frye is averaging a career-high tying 12.3 points and a career-high 6.6 rebounds in 61 games in his second season with the Suns.

Frye has also made more three-pointers than any NBA player since the beginning of the 2009-10 season (304).
