In brief: Wrist sprain

May indicate a severe injury not just a "normal no fracture" X-ray.
Wrist ligament injuries can be complex and if associated with significant swelling and pain one need to be evaluated with a hand surgeon. Don't be satisfied with "no fracture" seek treatment.

In brief: Seek care

Lack of finger movement may be pain or more complex.
You should seek care and see your MD. This needs attention. You said not broken, was that based on a X-ray and is your wrists in a splint. If so have to ensure splint not too tight to impair circulation. Best of luck

In brief: Tendon injury

this is most likely a tendon injury since you cannot move the fingers.
There are other soft tissues in the wrist which also could be injured. You need to see your physician and perhaps see a orthopedic hand specialist. You may need other imaging including MRI. Be sure what the damage is.
