NBA announcer Craig Sager to have rare 3rd bone marrow transplant

Thanks to an anonymous donor, popular NBA reporter Craig Sager will undergo a rare third bone marrow transplant Wednesday.

"While I'm healthy and I had no problems with other organs or whatever, they wanted to do it now. And they had a match for me, and so they said it's best we do it now. So I canceled the Olympics," he said

Pulling out of the Olympics was a bit of disappointment for him, as it would've been his fifth straight Olympic Games.

His son, Craig Sager II, tweeted Tuesday night saying:

"Thanks to an anonymous donor, tomorrow my dad will enter an unimaginable milestone with his third bone marrow/stem cell transplant in a 3 year span."

Thanks to an anonymous donor, tmrw my Dad will enter an unimaginable milestone w/ his 3rd bone marrow/stem cell transplant in a 3year span­???­??¬</p>-- Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) August 30, 2016 In early August, KPRC 2 sat down with the 65-year-old, who was confined to a hospital room, as he started another round of chemotherapy. His spirits were high and he was looking forward to getting back on the sidelines.

"My calculations, if I get my recovery act together, I'll be back for opening night of the NBA season," Sager said.

NBC announced last month that the 65-year-old Sager was preparing for the transplant at Houston's MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Sager was first diagnosed with leukemia in 2014 and announced in March that he was no longer in remission.

Sager II also thanked his father's TNT colleague Charles Barkley on Twitter for keeping his dad company in Houston.

Have to thank Barkley for keeping my Dad company today in Houston as he finished his final prep work & for being there every step. ­??»</p>-- Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) August 31, 2016 Sager is known for his outlandish suits and strong rapport with NBA players and coaches.
