In brief: If the pain is it -

-thumb @ the 2nd joint from the nail, a ligament injury will not show up on films.
a hands on xam by an ortho surg & imaging & possible stress films may give the answer.

Evaluation and repeat imaging in order. Fractures of the scaphoid (navicular) notoriously may initially be negative. An increased clear space between the navicular and lunate is suggestive of a ligament injury.
