There are many ways to sprain your ankle in Basketball. Perhaps the most common is to land wrong after jumping for a block or shot. Falling from a foul may also cause a sprained ankle.

It's a sprain in the upper ligament of your ankle. These are usually much more painful and take longer to heal. (I had one about 2 months ago and they suck).
