Maybe golf is more Adam Sandler's speed after all.

The 41-year-old funnyman is on the mend after breaking his ankle while playing basketball this weekend, according to a statement issued Monday by his rep. 

Sandler's team still won the game, however, and—better yet—the injury won't affect production on his new comedy, Bedtime Stories, in which he plays a hotel handyman whose fantastical bedtime stories that he tells to his niece and nephew start coming true. 

Only, unlike M. Night Shyamalan's Lady in the Water, Sandler's take on the nighttime-tales-come-alive will be intentionally funny. His castmates include Keri Russell, Courteney Cox, Guy Pearce and Lucy Lawless. 

Meanwhile, previews are starting to trickle out for Sandler's next big-screen escapade from his Happy Madison Productions, the fish-out-of-water comedy You Don't Mess with the Zohan. Sandler stars as an Israeli secret agent who fakes his own death so he can start anew as a New York hairdresser. 

The film hits theaters June 6.
