In the past several weeks, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has sprained his surgically repaired ankle three times, which is obviously not a very good sign for the team.

His most recent sprain will keep him out of Friday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers, according to the Oakland Tribune. Curry says his ankle "didn't respond as well as I wanted" and that it isn't clear how long he will be out, the paper reports.

Curry planned to discuss his situation with a number of doctors Thursday, including the one who performed his surgery last May, Bob Anderson of OrthoCarolina, according the Trib.

Curry, the seventh overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft and the son of former NBA player Dell Curry, is averaging 15.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game.
