The joint is a little swollen, sensitive, a little discolored, not itchy or sting.
Chas Tennis - I do understand the suggestion to see a doctor. There's a part of me that agrees. Since I really don't believe there is any major fracture in there (based on touch, lack of pain, low swelling, not a huge impact), a small fracture or tear will both be treated with a splint. I immobilized the finger the first night (Tuesday). If I do go to a doctor, most likely on Monday, they will certainly bend the finger and I'd be a week behind the heeling practice.
