Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The clutch is hydraulically actuated, a master cylinder actuated by the pedal and slave cylinder on the transmission. It isn't unheard of for a slave cylinder to not work well when cold but start to work some when it heats up and the seals expand.

When the problem happens, with the engine running are you unable to put the shifter in gear?

It could be the master cylinder but it's more likely to be a failed slave cylinder.
