Wrist: Anything is possible, there could be a small little chip fracture which may have caused swell or it could just be soft tissue giving similar symptoms. If it persists after you remove the splint you may want to consider being evaluated by orthopedic surgeon for consideration of X-rays in further clinical evaluation and work up
