Whilst Chris Bosh hasn't been able to take to the NBA hardwood for the past two weeks due to an undisclosed medical issue, it hasn't kept him away from the Miami Heat's own facilities.
The perennial All-Star's teammate Dwyane Wade, via ESPN, explained this week how Bosh has been able to remain a very active member of the roster - throwing up shots in the process.
"He gets on the court, shoots [a few] jump shots and gets a little sweat in," Wade told ESPN. "He's still a big part of this team. As I've said before, he's around, and he's in good spirits."
Bosh has been out of action since removing himself from the 2016 All-Star game, and details of the reason for his absence have been scarce.
He is currently listed as "out indefinitely" whilst a calf strain was cited when he stepped down from the All-Star game. After missing 30 games last season with a blood clot issue, however, the levels of concern are high.

There has been no confirmation this issue is a repeat of that scary situation, although ESPN reports that the veteran has undergone tests and seen "multiple medical specialists" in recent days to access treatment options for the unpublicised issue.
Hearing from Wade, that Bosh is able to get a run out on the Heat's practice court is a positive sign, of course.
What's more, via the same report, those within the organisation are said to be a lot more optimistic about his condition than last season and are hopeful that he can return to action before the end of the season.
For now, though, Bosh is making his presence felt by aiding Miami's younger players and keeping involved with the team's game preparation.
