Craig Sager’s Leukemia Has Returned, ‘NBA on TNT’ Reporter Says (Video)

Sideline personality says he’s facing “uncharted waters”

“NBA on TNT” sideline reporter Craig Sager reveals on Tuesday’s episode of HBO’s “Real Sports” that his leukemia has returned.

In a conversation with Bernard Goldberg, Sager says that he is no longer in remission, adding that “uncharted waters” lie ahead of him.

“I’ve already had two stem-cell transplants. Very rarely does somebody have a third,” Sager says in a clip from the episode.

“I have to maintain my strength so I can go through this,” he explains, adding that he’s “still kicking, still fighting.

“I haven’t won the battle. It’s not over yet, but I haven’t lost it, either,” Sager continues.

Sager, who was first diagnosed with leukemia in 2014, previously underwent bone-marrow and stem-cell transplants received from his son, according to ESPN. Despite the worsening of his condition, Sager will continue to appear on “NBA on TNT” throughout April.
