Channing Frye (illness) enters Cleveland's starting lineup

Cleveland Cavaliers forward/center Channing Frye will start for Kevin Love (illness) against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday despite playing through an illness.

With a $3,500 price tag on FanDuel, Frye is numberFire's third-best value play for DFS purposes. We project him to record 12.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 3-pointers in 25.7 minutes versus...
