In brief: Brace, not Wrap
Typically the neoprene or ace type sleeves will not prevent the ankle roll.
Look for a clamshell or stirrup type brace if you can wear it comfortably during play. The lace up style is also good, and better tolerated.

In brief: One prescribed by Dr
Usually a brace dispensed and prescribed by your doctor- in our clinic athletes respond well to the velocity ankle brace or a similar figure of 8 lace-up type brace.

In brief: Depends on severity
It depends on type and severity of the injury.
Have it evaluated and have the appropriate brace prescribed that best suits your condition.
