Minimum 3 weeks.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Thanks for the question.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Fractures of little toes (if in good position) take minimum 3 weeks to unite so the minimum time taken to restart playing tennis would be 3 weeks. If problem like pain or stiffness persists then it may take longer time ( for physiotherapy).

Take care.
