OAKLAND -- Perhaps having been through it so often has made him comfortable. But Warriors guard Stephen Curry wasn't moping about this latest ankle injury. Instead, he decided to have some fun with it.

It began Monday on Twitter. Curry 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. Someone tweeted to Curry, "Doubt you play this game much" and attached a Photoshop'd picture of Curry playing Twister.

One suggested his theme song be "Twist and Shout" by The Beatles. Another 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."
