Former NBA player and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley didn't let hip replacement surgery keep him from visiting Turner Sports sideline reporter Craig Sager in the hospital. 

As the Associated Press explained (via USA Today), Sager underwent his third bone marrow transplant since he was diagnosed with leukemia in 2014. 

Stacy, Sager's wife, couldn't be with Sager during the transplant because she caught a cold and could've infected the beloved television personality. 

Enter Barkley, who traveled from Phoenix to Houston against his own doctor's orders.

Faith in humanity restored, if only for one day.
