The Los Angeles Lakers are already dealing with their best player getting over an ankle injury right now. They were probably hoping the Golden State Warriors would have to wait a game or two before their best player tried to play with his own ankle injury leaving his status in doubt. 

However, the Lakers won't be so lucky against the Warriors in Oakland Monday night. Stephen Curry will try to shake off the ankle injury and play against Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and the rest of the Lakers' backcourt that will attempt to keep Curry from doing what he loves to do to his opponents -- bombard them with 3-pointers.

Curry is the league's leading 3-point shooter at 45.8 percent, which is insane when you factor in that he's also leading the league in 3-pointers attempted.
