Craig Sager, the famed sideline reporter beloved by fans and athletes alike, is suffering once again from leukemia. The Turner Sports legend, who returned to airwaves earlier in March to much deserved fanfare, recently had to cancel plans to call several NCAA tournament games for TNT and TBS.
Sager’s son Craig Sager Jr. released the news via Twitter on Sunday.

It nearly goes without saying that the NBA is a poorer place without Craig Sager on the sidelines. Last season’s playoff run and the first chunk of the 2014-15 season just didn’t feel the same without Sager’s mid- and postgame interviews. Everyone at Yahoo Sports wishes Mr. Sager a full and speedy recovery.
