Mods, I'm not sure if this is in the right place. If not, please move it. Thanks.

My friend plays basketball outdoors and often rolls his ankle. He tried ankle braces and they didn't work. High top Nikes/Converses with the straps didn't help either. Does anyone have suggestions on what else to try or use to stop the rollovers?

Nothing can help him. He have weak chronic ankle because you said he rolled them more than one.. The best suggestion is don't rebound in traffic, don't jump into other players while shooting , just run and shoot. The more he sprain his ankle , the weaker and less flexible his ankle will be.

run barefoot to strengthen his ankles, training and stretching exersizes, lots of rest to heal them up, maybe even nike frees...

^^^ Tape actually will weaken the ankle overtimes . The only way to prevent ankle sprain for weak ankle permantly is to have surgery to shorten the ligaments.
