Keith Smart, assistant, taking another health-related leave from Heat

As reported here last night, Heat assistant coach Keith Smart has taken a second leave of absence from the team, for another round of treatment for a rare form of skin cancer.

He was not with the team in Chicago.

Smart, who has been a head coach for three NBA franchises, missed about three weeks starting in mid-December, after the cancer was found on the left side of his jaw. Upon his return, he declared himself "in the clear."

The Heat doesn't have a definitive date set for his return, though the absence is likely to be measured in weeks, not days. 

Smart joined the Heat prior to last season, in a staff shuffle in which Bob McAdoo and Ron Rothstein took other jobs in the organization. 

The Heat continues its road trip Tuesday night in Brooklyn.
