hi, It could be infective process in your knuckle that is swollen now. You mostly require a course of oral antibiotics to get rid of it. Continue to take Advil, and give cold compresses locally. Get well soon.
 
I was playing basket ball and hurt my finger it is a day later and it is swollen and purple black on back knuckle and base and green on knuckle ans base
The injury part need to be x-ray to rule out the fracture part till then you can try Tab Diclofenac 50 mg once in day.
 
I punched a wall about an hour ago and now my middle finger knuckle is swollen and feels creaky. It doesnt hurt to move and the knuckle feels in place.
certainly can't rule out a fracture without an exam and a fracture that heals wrong can be a problem leading to it not working as well. (you've mentioned why that doesn't seem likely to you). Ice, limiting the mobility of it (popsickle stick with taping) elevation, and aspirin like drugs can be helpful to lower pain/swelling. If all/nearly all better in the a.m. hard to make a case for x-rays.
