Thank you. That is helpful to know. We now know nothing was broken. However, you still fail to mention another important detail: what was the physician's actual diagnosis ? Something must have been visible on that X-ray as you mention that there is a visible deformity of your finger. Now that nothing was broken it is likely a soft-tissue injury, but which one ? Was it a sprain, a subluxation, what grade ?
Other information is necessary too so that either I or 'people' can provide you with a meaningful answer beyond mere speculation and that can speed up your recovery. For example, how precisely did the injury occur ? Did you get stuck in a gi ? Did someone fall on it, or did you yourself fall on it. Did you hit a guy's shoulder with the top of your finger perpendicular when trying to turn in something like ippon-seoi-nage ? Did your finger color blue, green ? How long ago did this happen. Have you done anything else but taping it ?
These answers are necessary. For example, just based on what we know from you now, I can't even say for sure if you would best treat it with ice or with heat, two things which are basically each others opposite. So, please, be as specific and detailed as possible. We are not trying to annoy you, just help you.
