The flamboyant sartorial style of Turner broadcasting’s ubiquitous sideline reporter, Craig Sager, was an afterthought on Thursday night. Sager’s son, Craig Sager Jr., tweeted the news that the elder Sager would be undergoing chemotherapy treatment tomorrow for Leukemia.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Sager and his family in this trying time. The 2014 NBA Playoffs won’t be nearly as much fun without him, so we hope he can return to the sideline soon.

Sager was brave enough to get in a race car with Mario Andretti, so we have faith he can overcome cancer, too.

Get well.
