1) a brace is unlikely to be of any value unless it immobilizes or provides added resistance to movement; this is not very feasible with the wrist as you need a fairly full range of wrist motion in order to play tennis.
2) since the structures most likely to be injured or inflamed are inside the bony tunnel (carpal tunnel) of the wrist, ice is unlikely to be of any real benefit.
3) rest it for a more meaningful period of time, a month or two, then seek medical attention if it persists.
