Adelaide 36ers linchpin Jerome Randle has been cleared of a knee injury and will play in the club's crunch NBL games.

Randle, the league's leading scorer, passed a fitness test at training on Wednesday and will fly with teammates for Adelaide's two season-defining away games.

The 36ers must beat Illawarra in Wollongong on Friday and then the Wildcats in Perth on Sunday to reach the playoffs.
