wrapping a reoccurring injury for a race

Should I wrap a reoccurring leg injury(tibia stress fracture) as a precautionary measure on race day? Understand the associated risks with this and won't run if pain is too much. Have limited my last 6 weeks to deep water running. I want to make sure wrapping isn't counter intuitive.
