A ball hit my finger Instantly it started to Bruise and swell Today it is bruised but les swollen I can move it some but it hurts.jammed?

Yeah. You did probably jam it.
In middle school, I played handball for 6th grade, I got a bruise on my finger because the ball was so rough and scraped my fingers.
By after that day, it sucked because my finger looked a little greenish blueish grayish color, all mixed together!
I went to the doctor, then he told me I was "okay", I just jammed my finger hard at something (the ball) and that it screwed up my finger, so I couldn't TOUCH ANYTHING.
It was really disappointing because when I touched my finger it sent a jolt through.

more than likely. i play basket ball and it happens all the time so yes it is almost definitely jammed. if the bruising changes colors and it swells again them i'd say it is broken but go with jammed for now. And just to be safe i recomend a splint

I'm 90 percent sure it is jammed from the information that you gave me. The pain will persist for a week or two, I've had jams and my sister has too. If it take longer to heal then that ask a doctor for guidance. You may need a small cast like covering if it is not healing on it's own. Just take it easy for a while and it should be fine. I hope this helps. I also hope your finger feels better soon.

i play field hockey, and this happened to me. i actually had to go to the emergency room, and i tore my tendon. if you can't move it in the next 2-3 days, go seek help!

Yep. It's jammed. Get a finger splint in case you fractured it and keep it elevated.

When ever i jam my finger, or "dummy" as i say, i pull my finger as soon as it happens and it seems to not hurt later on
