Thanks for writing to us.
Since there is a fracture in the knee, it is best to avoid weight bearing on the leg. As it is too late to put a cast, you can use a crepe bandage or use a knee brace to provide rest to the knee for at least 4 weeks.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
