Dillon Boucher and Gary Wilkinson have resumed training with the Sky City Breakers after being laid low by a stomach bug.

The two power forwards were isolated from the team yesterday as they prepare for game two of the Australian NBL's grand final series in Perth.

Boucher says he feels a lot better today.

"Still not a hundred per cent, I was struggling out there a little bit today, just to get energy and get my breath back but I'm confident come Friday, obviously it's a couple days away, that I'll be good to go."

Boucher says his absence wasn't a disruption for the team as they prepare to face the Wildcats in Perth on Friday.

"I think it was a disruption, probably more for me personally. I missed out on a lot of the scouting stuff they did yesterday and missed out on just having that extra training under my belt."

Development player Dion Prewster again skipped practice with illness while Tom Abercrombie was again restricted to light duties and was unable to train on his troublesome left ankle.
