I gotta miss tonight's game and the next game, that makes 3 games i've missed so far in a 15-18 game league. I hope it gets better soon.
Well, generally you want to elevate the leg and then Ice it and alternate with a heat pad for a couple of days. Once the swelling is down, I recommend a hot tub. If you don't have a hot tub, the next best thing is a bath tub with hot water with a cup of salt.
