TNT’s Craig Sager will work two games next week
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.
