Craig Sager to Miss Olympics, Will Start New Round of Chemo


Turner Sports reporter Craig Sager began a new round of chemotherapy at Houston’s MD Anderson Cancer on Wednesday. He said Thursday that he will be unable to cover basketball at the Rio Olympics.

The procedure is intended for the colorful NBA sideline reporter to undergo a third bone marrow transplant in August in his fight against leukemia, initially diagnosed in 2014.
