TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager will return to work on March 5 after nearly a year spent battling leukemia, his son says.

Sager will also work during Turner's coverage of the NCAA tournament.

Sager, 63, was diagnosed with leukemia last April and missed the NBA playoffs while receiving treatment. He appeared on TNT during the network's coverage of the All-Star Game earlier this month to interview Carmelo Anthony.

Sager said at the time that he hoped he would return to the sideline "probably around March 1 if everything goes well over these next two weeks." - Dan Gartland
