    Recently I started lifting but I got injured two weeks ago playing basketball (got undercut going for a rebound and fell on my left wrist, I think it's sprained). I haven't been to the doc yet but I'll probably sched an appointment since I reinjured it again today. I thought I was mostly healed, but reaggravated it playing b-ball again.

    Anybody have similar experiences with wrist injury? How long did it take to heal and how long before I can lift again? What should I do in the meantime, just squats and running? I love deadlifting but I don't think I should risk doing those for a while (I'll probably stay away from basketball for at least another two weeks too). Any advice in general?

    I would honestly ice it and leave it be for a little while, and focus on working legs.

    Invest in a good set of wrist wraps

    I injured my wrist snowboarding 8 years ago. Never had it looked at but it still hurts around 90% of my 1rm on bench, doing push ups, snowboarding and falling on it or anything else where it's bent back a lot with any strain. Ya - still hurts but wrist wraps have let me keep benching heavy (for my ability). Have to board with a wrist gaurd and deadlifts don't bother it. So ya - ice it and give it some time but if it doesn't go away it's still possible to function around it....
