Cleveland Cavaliers forward Channing Frye announced the awful news that his father, Thomas Frye, had passed away on Thanksgiving.

The cause of death is unknown, but the news comes less than a month after his mother, Karen, passed away following a long cancer battle.

The former Orlando Magic man missed two games earlier in the season to be with his family, and it is unclear if he will be suiting up for Cleveland's Black Friday showcase with the Dallas Mavericks.

Tributes have poured in on social media for the 33-year-old, who took to Instagram to urge his followers to love their family whilst they are still around.

Losing family is never easy, but for it to come during a holiday period in the United States is extremely tough, and all of our thoughts here at GiveMeSport are with Channing and his family during this period.

Frye has become an invaluable member of the Cavaliers' rotation since making the switch from Orlando. His three-point shooting has been excellent and he is the type of volume scorer championship-calibre teams need on the bench.

The organisation is likely to give Frye all of the time he needs before stepping back on the court.
