Zuma is yet to play this season as a result of a combination of injuries and his off-field issues.
But Baxter said the winger has improved in his fitness and impressed in practise matches.
Zuma has skill and burning pace, an eye for a goal and has endeared himself to the Amakhosi faithful with his habit of coming off the bench and swinging matches in Chiefs' favour.
He seems likely to have opportunities to kick the ball in anger for the first time this season as Chiefs chase a second spot finish, the only available avenue for them to return to the top table of African football in the Caf Champions League.
Chiefs are not involved in this weekend's Nedbank Cup quarterfinals and return to action with their league fixture against SuperSport United on Saturday, April 16.
