At least I can play doubles which is such a blessing as tennis is a very big part of my life. I forgot how much more of an impact singles takes on your body. I also had no idea how long it takes for broken bones to heal...they make it look so easy in the movies
I think it really depends on whether you are harming your leg or risking further injury when you play singles and experience pain.

If you are risking your recovery, then quit the league right now!

On the other hand, if it's "just" pain but otherwise doing no harm, then I don't know... I might be inclined to continue, but play with the mindset of keeping points super short. But I don't know if that's an option for you - obviously it depends on your style of play.
