In brief: Likely Muscle Sprain

It sounds like an acute muscle sprain.
Daily workouts are fine for sports, can lead to a sprain sooner or later. Take a good rest for a week. Stretch for at least 15 minutes twice a day. You can try a dose of ibuprofen for pain, three of the 200 mg ibuprofen tablets, as often as three times a day. The rest part is the MOST important. Keep up the stretching routine as you go back to play.
