Beloved TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager returned to work earlier this month after a bout with leukemia, but sadly, the disease has returned. Sager’s son released the following message on Twitter:

Sager was first diagnosed with leukemia in April 2014. He underwent chemotherapy and was finally cleared to work for the Chicago Bulls’ game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on March 5. Sager received an outpouring of support from just about everybody, and the Bulls even honored him with a custom blazer:

Sager was supposed to work the NCAA Tournament, but doctors suggested he sit that out. And now comes the news that the leukemia has returned. Hopefully he beats it again and can get back to work as soon as possible. Get well soon, Craig.
