CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Hornets coach Steve Clifford has been medically cleared to return to coaching on a full-time basis.

The team said Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) that Clifford will officially re-join the Hornets starting with practice Tuesday (next Wednesday, PHL time). He will return to the sideline Wednesday night (next Thursday, PHL time) against the Washington Wizards.

Clifford has been away from the team since Dec. 6 (Dec. 7, PHL time) dealing with a health issue.
