What did I do to my hip?

Question: What did I do to my hip?

I was playing basketball, and I was going in for a layup and a girl tripped me. I landed on my hip, and i can't put full weight on that leg, and, it feels like I have a swollen spot. I don't have a bruse on the surface. I can't move my leg side to side, and lift it up on its own.

Answer:

From @3valerie3 via Twitter: Most likely contusion with possible bursitis. Rec ice, laser therapy, rest, and Kinesio Taping in web form.
