In brief: When it resolves
Participation in all sports should be avoided if a patient has enlarged liver from infectious mononucleosis.
When the enlargement has resolved, full activity may be resumed. Acute rupture of an enlarged spleen poses a higher risk than the liver. This usually resolves in a little over a month and the patient must be evaluated and cleared by a physician prior to returning to activity.

In brief: Yes
You can play but a good idea would to wear a flack jacket to help protect the area as is worn in football to prevent rib injuries.
