Johnson suffered a toe infection during the recent series victory in Australia, but after the infection spread to his leg, he was left out of the country's team that participated in the World T20.
His services in the event were dearly missed, as Australia lost all but one of their matches, their only victory coming in a dead rubber against Bangladesh.
On Monday, though, Cricket Australia (CA) revealed that the 32-year-old was cleared to start training again.
"Mitchell Johnson has been cleared to resume playing duties after recovering from an infection in his right leg that ruled him out of the ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh. Johnson's next playing commitment is with Kings XI Punjab in the IPL. The tournament starts in the UAE next Wednesday, April 16," CA said in a statement.
