How long does a badly bruised finger take to heal?

I smashed my finger with a basketball and now I can bend it so it's not broken but its all black and blue marked. how long do u think it will take to heal?

A badly bruised finger will take about 6 months to heal. This however, depends on the nature of the bruise and how much blood absorption has occurred. To treat it you need to apply ice a few times a day. Wrap the injured finger with a clean, sterile bandage for 30 to 60 minutes to reduce the swelling. Consult a therapist for the right treatment.

two to three weeks maybe longer.....there is no set time for an injury to heal so it may take alittle longer than that
