A bit of good news for NBA fans: TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager is out of the hospital and is one step closer to getting back on the air.
First, this tweet started making the rounds:
Was just chatting w/ @CraigSagerJr ... Craig Sager is being discharged from the hospital today. More treatment still to come, but good news.— Jared Zwerling (@JaredZwerling) May 9, 2014
Then Sager’s son got in on the act, posting about his dad’s tremendous recovery and spirit:
cards, pics, posters etc packed up & Sager has left the building after 21 days. First time he's had fresh air since! pic.twitter.com/96HpoJdq4b— Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) May 9, 2014
He will have to return to clinic every day for the next few weeks and he is still waiting on bone marrow procedure but he CRUSHED CHEMO!!!— Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) May 9, 2014
The doctors said they've never seen someone complete the chemo (he did 3 different kinds of it) & get a discharge in less than 3 weeks.— Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) May 9, 2014
While it sounds like he’s still got a little ways to go, the elder Craig Sager is doing remarkably well. Here’s hoping we see him (and his heinous suits) back on the sidelines soon.
