Hornets boss Clifford cleared to resume coaching

January 12 2018 3:43 AM

The Charlotte Hornets are getting their head coach back after Steve Clifford was cleared to resume his duties following medical leave.

Clifford had been out since December 6 because of health issues, reported as severe headaches.

It was a condition that began to plague Clifford even before the 2017-18 NBA season.

Clifford will officially re-join the Hornets starting with practice on January 16 before returning to the sidelines against the visiting Washington Wizards the following day.

The Hornets (15-24) have gone 6-11 with associate head coach Stephen Silas filling in while Clifford was out.

Charlotte will play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday before heading to Detroit for a tilt with the Pistons on Monday.
