If you truly cannot bend the knee or bear weight then the injury is sufficient to be concerned.

One reason to seek medical attention would be if there was an open wound associated with the injury.

Be seen: I would be seen. It could be a torn ACL or other ligament or cartilage, there could even be a component of a sciatica to your complaint; but when people begin to complain of swelling in the leg itself, a blood clot is a consideration as well. And, because that is potentially life threatening, you need to be seen to rule this out. ...Read more
The bottom part of my knee hurts after basketball and I can't put weight on my knee, bend it, or straighten it out all the way. It is swollen
