INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — After missing the last two games, Cleveland Cavaliers center Channing Frye rejoined his teammates on the practice floor Monday.

Frye was excused from the team to attend his father’s funeral over the weekend. The Cavaliers topped Miami and Charlotte in consecutive nights.

It’s been a difficult stretch for Frye off the court and the Cavs have told him to take all the time away he needs.
