    Sprained my ankle really bad about a week ago. Looking for a good working ankle brace that I can wear while playing basketball after it heals. Any suggestions?

    First thing you need to look at is the shoes.

    I used to ball in running shoes and rolled the ankle often. I finally sprang for a decent pair of B-Ball shoes with good ankle support and velcro straps and it helps a lot. If you have that down already, try the one posted above, seeing as the cheaper ankle-wrap braces are not all that good.
