Ankles injuries during basketball usually occur when a player jumps up for a rebound and lands on someone else’s foot on accident or missteps as they come down. Another common occurrence is when the foot gets caught between other player’s feet and the foot is held in place while the ankle is being twisted in another direction. Lastly, it may occur due to ankle instability due to quick cuts on the court. An ankle brace can provide adequate support for a previously injured ankle or for prevention purposes.
