    Default what knee support/brace are you using?

    Currently, I don't have problem with my knee other than little feel of sour after a couple of games. I am planning to use knee support just to avoid something bad. So what type of knee support you guys are using? Any good brand/style to recommend?

    You should see a sports medicine specialist right away if you have continuing knee problems.

    For Level I Protection (minimal protection, minimal hinderance of movement), any strap will be decent.

    Yes, that's because I always feel slight pain.

    Braces restrict movement so a strap should be the first choice, then a neoprene support, then a full brace if needed.
