Craig Sager Rumors
Sam Amick: Craig Sager: “I got to the point where I said ‘I don’t want anyone in my room who isn’t going to be optimistic.'” itun.es/i6Sb4Jc
“First of all, as a reporter he’s excellent,” Albert says of Sager. “He’s not afraid to ask the right question and he does it the right way. If he realizes he has some information he knows he’s not going to be able to get out because of the pace of the game, he’ll come over from the sideline and share it with us in the booth. Not everyone does that.”
After 82 days of a 100-day maintenance program, his doctors at MD Anderson released him to go home to Atlanta. Sager is still seeing Houston doctors for aftercare maintenance and he recently had his blood work done, which checked out great. “All my numbers are good, my body is developing its own white blood cells, my platelets are high,” Sager said.
Doctors said Sager is free to travel and he also has designs on working for NBC as a basketball reporter at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. “I have no restrictions as of now,” Sager said. But he is by no means done with treatment. On Nov. 9 Sager will return to MD Anderson to receive two daily Vidaza injections in his stomach. The medication is used to treat a group of blood/bone marrow disorders in which the bone marrow does not produce enough healthy blood cells. It is believed to work by helping bone marrow grow normal blood cells so patients will need fewer blood transfusions.
