4-6 weeks: Bones of the fingers and toes usually take 4-6 weeks to heal depending on the age of the patient, the severity of the fracture, and the location of the injury.

A 24-year-old member asked:

I broke my pinky metacarpal bone. What is the easiest and cheapest thing I can do to fix this?

Depends on break: Needs evaluation, xray to see if displaced fracture or not (don't want nerve, blood vessel damage, not too mention deformity or poor function/pain after healing). Cast or splint. Healing generally in about 6 weeks. Displaced fractures sometimes need surgery to repair.
