Sideline reporter Craig Sager spoke with New York Knicks Star Carmelo Anthony from Orlando, Fla., on TNT's All-Star Game broadcast on Sunday.

Sager has been away from the sidelines since he began receiving treatment for leukemia last April. Sager spoke about his battle with cancer in December on Inside the NBA.

Anthony said to Sager, "We miss you. ... The game hasn't been the same, the sidelines hasn't been the same without seeing you out there."

Sager, donning polka dot socks and a shorts suit, responded by explaining that he could possibly return "probably around March 1 if everything goes well over these next two weeks."
