Craig Sager recently announced that his cancer is no longer in remission, but the NBA sideline reporter isn't letting his condition prevent him from doing what he loves.
According to multiple reports, TNT's man of many suits will make his return to the hardwood Tuesday when the Warriors take on the Washington Wizards at Oracle Arena.
On Monday, Sager was featured in an episode of HBO Real Sports, where it was revealed that he had only 3-6 months to live. Sager clarified his prognosis in a statement on Wednesday:
"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. 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."
Sager was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in April 2014, which forced him to take nearly a year off before going back to work in March 2015 with the disease in remission.
Unfortunately, Sager's return was shortlived, as the cancer came back later that month. It went back into remission in October 2015, however, allowing him to cover select games this season.
Sager's last appearance at Oracle came on Oct. 27, was Golden State defeated the New Orleans Pelicans in the team's regular season opener.
