Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is out indefinitely with a right ankle sprain, the same ankle he injured multiple times in the 2010-11 season that led him to surgery in May 2011 to repair torn ligaments and again in April 2012.

Curry's latest sprain came after he was chasing a loose rebound during a recent shootaround. He sat out Wednesday night's blowout home loss to the Miami Heat and head coach Mark Jackson said Curry will be shut down for an indefinite amount of time so that he can rehab the ankle once again, according to a report from The San Jose Mercury News:

"It was really a freak injury. We don't do much in shootaround -- (he was) just chasing after a loose rebound. It's unfortunate. We will shut him down. He'll get treatment, and we'll see where he goes."

X-rays on his ankle came back negative but Curry said he has no idea if this latest recovery will be fast or slow:

"I haven't been in this situation for a while. I don't know if it will be a fast or slow kind of deal just because after two surgeries and all that process, it finally had the time to cool down."
After rehabbing his ankle for several months from his previous surgeries, Curry came back healthy again and was signed to a four-year, $44 million contract extension with the Warriors before the start of this season. In 36 games so far this season, he is averaging 20.5 points, 6.6 assists, 1.6 steals and a league-leading 3.1 three per game.
