Orlando Magic decision-makers signed Channing Frye to a four-year, $32 million contract in July because they expect Frye will make their young players better. Team executives and coach Jacque Vaughn envision Frye setting up on the perimeter and stretching opposing defenses, which would create driving lanes and space in the paint.

The plan will have to wait.

Frye is out indefinitely after he injured his left knee in a collision with teammate Ben Gordon during a scrimmage Thursday. An MRI revealed the 31-year-old power forward suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament.
