TNT analyst Craig Sager to miss NBA playoffs as he undergoes treatment for leukemia

ATLANTA — TNT analyst Craig Sager will miss the NBA playoffs as he undergoes treatment for leukemia.

A sideline reporter famous for his brightly colored suits, Sager’s sense of humor was intact in a statement released by Turner Sports today.

Sager describes the postseason as “my favorite time of year - city to city, round by round, 40 games in 40 nights.” He says that “a dramatic turn has matched me with acute myeloid leukemia. From the sidelines to being sidelined, 40 veins and 40 electrolytes.”

Sager jokes about the often-terse in-game interviews with San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: “Too bad, I had some probing questions for Pop.”
