Sager will join the network’s broadcast crew for Wizards–Warriors on Tuesday and Bulls–Rockets on Thursday.
This week, Sager revealed that his leukemia was no longer in remission, and said in a statement on Wednesday that someone in his position who was not receiving treatment would have just 3–6 months to live.
“The typical prognosis is 3-6 months to live, but I would like to stress that is for a patient who is not receiving treatment,” Sager said. “Fortunately, I am receiving the best treatment in the world and I remain fully confident I will win this battle.
“Again, I would like to thank everyone for your generosity and encouragement. I sincerely appreciate it and it means so much to me and my family. I look forward to continuing my work on the sidelines for Turner Sports.”
The 64-year-old has been working this season after undergoing a bone marrow transplant in July. He was initially diagnosed with leukemia in April 2014, and the disease returned in March 2015.
The Warriors and Wizards will tip at 10:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
