Knee pain

In basketball practice I made a cut and felt a sharp pain in my right knee. After that, running and jumping has caused much pain in my knee. I went to an athletic trainer and they told me I had tendinitis and to ice and take ibuprofen. It continues to be very painful during practice. I can feel rubbing and clicking in my knee when I walk. What is wrong with my knee? Should I still be playing basketball or will it make it worse?

If you continue to exercise ie.basketball before giving your knee time to recover then yes it could worsen the pain. See a sprots physiotherapist to get a proffesional rehab opinion.
