Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry had surgery on his right ankle last May to repair two torn ligaments, but that hasn't stopped the ankle from causing him big problems this season. In Wednesday evening's loss to the San Antonio Spurs, Curry sprained the ankle for the third time this season.
Curry said that this one was the most painful of the three, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
"Just another reaggravation of the same thing that's been happening," Curry said after the game while soaking his foot in ice, the paper reports. "Just another frustrating incident I've got to deal with."
Curry's first sprain of the season occurred in the team's second preseason game and his second came in the team's second game of the season against the Chicago Bulls, forcing him to miss the next game. Now Curry is hoping he'll be recovered in time to play on Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
When he has been on the court for the 2-4 Warriors this season, Curry, who was selected seventh overall in the 2009 draft, has averaged 15.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game.
