Ulnar Fracture - Nightstick - and return to Volleyball

After six weeks casted (4 long arm, 2 short arm), my cast will be removed next week. I fractured my ulna and didn't require plates and screws to assist with the healing process. Currently casted at 5 weeks, I'm experiencing stiffness/weakness that seems normal and expected. Once my cast is removed, how soon can I begin playing volleyball? I'm a competitive athlete, and realize I'll need to have some physical therapy to regain range of motion and strength in my right arm. But, I really would like to know what I should expect post-cast and how soon I can try playing.
