Magic coach Steve Clifford has cleared health and safety protocols and will return for Wednesday’s game vs. the Celtics, the team announced.

Clifford tested positive for COVID-19 o April 22, then returned two negative tests before testing positive again April 24. He has missed five straight games and will also miss Monday’s matchup at Detroit.

Clifford has received both doses of the Moderna vaccine and told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski last week that he had experienced no side effects from the vaccine and did not have any of the usual symptoms from the virus.
