While playing basketball this weekend, Adam Sandler got so involved in the game that he broke an ankle.

The I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry & 50 First Dates star didn't exactly pick the best time to score an injury: he currently has four films in production -- including two that are filming, and three that feature him as producer. (IMDB also reports that Adam Sandler has another eight projects in development.) Still, his representative says that the injury won't sideline the 41-year-old actor's work schedule.His rep was also careful to note one important fact: even with a broken ankle, Adam Sandler still won the game.
