Wilkinson clear to play for Breakers

11:25 pm on 12 January 2011

The New Zealand Breakers forward Gary Wilkinson says he'll be playing in tonight's top of the table Australian National Basketball league match against the Cairns Taipans at the North Shore Events centre.

Wilkinson sprained his right wrist in training, doing some minor damage to the ligaments - but he's happy with the way it's responded to treatment.

He says he wasn't sure if he'd train but decided to and had no problems.

Wilkinson scored 27 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the win over the 36ers in Adelaide last weekend.
