Stephen Curry Has Some Fun with Latest Ankle Sprain

Perhaps having been through it so much has made him comfortable. But Curry wasn’t moping about this latest injury. Instead, he decided to have some fun with it.

Curry checked out of the game with 2:26 left in the third quarter after spraining his left ankle. He tried to stop on a dime and rolled it pretty good. He came back in the fourth quarter and finished the game. Certainly, winning Game 2 helped his mood. And that it wasn’t his right ankle, which has given him problems for the last couple years.

Curry was feeling good enough to joke about his sprained left ankle on Twitter Monday. He  solicited his followers’ best ankle puns. The quips poured in.


“There were so many of them,” Curry said, sitting on the scorer’s table before practice.

He even retweeted some and commented on others. Fazal Ahmed tweeted to Curry “Doubt you play this very much” and attached a Photoshop’d picture of Curry playing Twister.

Oscar Delgadillo suggested Curry’s theme song be “Twist and Shout” by the Beetles. Jerrell olbekson said his daytime soap would be called “As the Ankle Turns.” Another called him “Two Sprainz,” a play on the popular rapper Two Chainz.

“Mine was my favorite,” Curry said. “No ankle left unturned.”

So, you might as well keep it going. Gimmie your best “ankle-ism” as Curry calls it. Yes, he reads this blog.

    Curry’s an ankle breaker from the woumb. . .he didn’t really hurt himself; he just wanted some symmetry. . .

    I like his line from the post game courtside interview.

    His left ankle was feeling jealous. . .

    Twistabout is fair play. . .

    Sir bracelot. . .

    His sprains give the opposition pain. . .

    His game is growing in leaps & bounds, spurts & sprains. . .

    His latest sprain; that’s what happens when the other shoe finally drops. . .

    No sprain; no gain. . .
