It may sound stupid, but start from the beginning. Start with easy drills that include dribbling,shooting and playing in not so competitive games. Just so you can re-acclimated again. Then once you feel comfortable with your skills and as your wrist gets stronger, start doing harder drills and more competitive games. As far as drills go, pick drills that are accustomed to your game.

This is only my opinion, I'm not a doctor or trainer of any sort.

Pause this whole post but....

Dribble two balls at once, in every way possible for a good amount of time daily. Dribble high in one hand and low in the other, walking/running forward/backward while dribbling them alternatively and at the same time. Come up with other different ways with a ball in each hand to do.

Do short quick dribbles around your feet doing figure 8s, and then alternate the ball's path.

At my local gym, what I do to replicate a pass and shoot motion is pass the ball to the wall, catch, and shoot. Repetition definitely helps.

Just practice the moves that you were doing before you got hurt. Do them over and over and over and over and over again. That's the best drill you can do.

Get an easy stressball (not the tough @%+ ones) and use that anytime you are walking. Eventually as your strength builds up, start using it more often (as in all the time). I would take it easy though.
