ankle soreness

my son sprained his ankle (again) 3.5 weeks ago. saw the orthopedist 2 days after that and xrays showed no breaks or tears. he said 2 weeks of no basketball. 2 weeks later we go back to have it checked and he was cleared to play after a week. no pain, no swelling. he was doing the ankle rehab exercises all this time.

question, he felt some soreness after his first practice yesterday. is this a problem or do the muscles need to stretch and this is normal. he never did any exercises during the last 3.5 weeks. no running, no jumping..

thanks all
