Nic Claxton has been cleared to play in Friday's game after missing 17 straight contests with an undisclosed non-COVID illness.

Claxton participated in a workout with Brooklyn's G League team on Thursday.

“I was sick. That’s the extent I want to go with,” Claxton said last month.

Claxton told The Post’s Brian Lewis on Nov. 20 that he had “lost a lot of weight” because of the illness.
