I am fine before playing, and I do the usual warm ups, everything is fine in terms of speed, cuts, lateral movement in the game. But after about an hour and a half to two hours, my left ankle locks up and it feels like a light ankle sprain, there is pain and stiffness and it buggers up my game completely. Right foot is totally fine.

There is no swelling, there is no red marks. I just limp away after every session like a gimpy old man. Sometimes the ache and pains come earlier and my game just crumbles as I can't then drive or hit a jump shot, which isn't good in the fourth quarter.

I ice it up, and literally the next day it's fine again.

Have had this for 3 weeks now, and did not have any injuries as a precursor, as I spent new years and xmas ill with flu..

how often do you play? how often did you stop playing when you had the flu?

where EXACTLY do you feel the pain in your ankle? On he front, the outside, inside?
