Knee Injury from playing basketball


Q: I hurt my knee at a basketball camp and I didnt put ice on it until 8 hours later, I never got it checked out. I didn't fall on it. One guy was going for the basket and I tried stepping in front of him and his knee clipped my knee he fell and I didnt. I just ignored the pain and ran on it still, even though it was hard to bend my knee back and straighten it. It's swollen today and I could stand on it. It hurts on the right side of my knee cap on my left knee.
