Pain in knee, swelling, had a fall and hurt the same knee before. Bone bruising?

HI, I slipped over on the bathroom floor and fell right on knee.
It hurt a lot, but only slight bruise showed up. This was 6 weeks ago.
Knee felt good for awhile but after playing netball, i am in alot of pain with the same knee.
It has swelled but no bruising. It hurts to bend and put weight on it.
could it be bone bruising?
