bruised index finger knuckle

Hi! I was playing the game "Hot Hands" with a friends a couple months ago. He hit me (open palm) to the back of my left hand a bunch of times. I woke up the next day and the back of my left hand (around the index finger knuckle) became bruised and tender. When I tried to type at my job, I noticed the joint was stiff. The bruising went away after about 2 weeks, and the stiffness got better. However, I still feel a bit of stiffness in the index finger knuckle, and sometimes, I feel a very mild throbbing...as if it's bruised on the inside. In any case, it's been about 2 months since the game. When will my finger lose the stiffness? And should I tape it up, or splint it?

Thank you!
