The NBA initially gave Clarkson a thumbs down before an appeal by Philippine sports officials convinced the league to make a U-turn and grant the Cleveland Cavaliers guard clearance to play in the continental meet. Indonesia Asian Games 2018 Organizing Committee (INASGOC) and Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) said yes for his reentry to the team.

Clarkson is scheduled to arrive in Jakarta on Thursday at 10 a.m. local time and will miss the Philippines' first game of the competition against Kazakhstan.
