    Havent been able to play due to lock down and now that places are slowly opening up, I conveniently broke my ankle 3 days ago. Following up with doctors and such in the coming weeks but I cannot wait to play much longer.

    What are some of your recommendations or experiences playing with a broken bone(s)? Did your healing process change the way you now play? Whats the longest youve gone without playing?

    Pic related, its how I currently feel.

    I guess your ankle has put you into self quarantine. Relax and stay safe!
