CLEVELAND– The newly-acquired Channing Frye passed his physical and will be active for the Cavaliers Monday night.

The Cavs play the Detroit Pistons at Quicken Loans Arena at 7 p.m.

Frye, 32, had been with the Magic since 2014. This season, the 6-foot-11 power forward is averaging 5.2 points per game and 3.2 rebounds.

The Cavaliers beat the Thunder on Sunday 115-92. They are 40-14 and first the Eastern Conference.
