Three weeks ago i had a dislocation in my shoulder

Patient

Q: Three weeks ago i had a dislocation in my shoulder for the very first time in my life (am 17 yrs old)
I was just closing my closet
I did fall hard on my shoulder but that was three days before the dislocation
I want to know how to avoid any future dislocation
And will i be able to play basketball again in my life ?
If yes are there any positions i should avoid ? And should i wear something like a brace or any other thing to discourage future dislocation ?
Pls help...thank you
