Turner Sports released a statement on behalf of Craig Sager:
My favorite time of year – city to city, round by round, 40 games in 40 nights. A dramatic turn has matched me with acute myeloid leukemia. From the sidelines to being sidelined, 40 veins and 40 electrolytes. Too bad, I had some probing questions for Pop.

All of us at Bleacher Report would like to send Sager our best wishes and hope for a speedy recovery.
