Absolutely, my friend had carpel a couple weeks ago and it affected the strength in her wrist. I know that she wrapped hers up initially, everytime she played. but I do believe she had to take a few weeks off..

Listen to Scott first.

Yeah, it affects the wrist.  Usually people get it from a lot of typing of repetitive activity I believe.  You need to take 3-5 days off and come back and see how it feels.  If it is still bothering you call your doctor.
The first year I coached high school tennis one of the students started playing more than he was used to and his wrist bothered him all week in practice.  He was hitting 7 days a week at that point in time.  I asked him to take Saturday and Sunday off from hitting which was HUGE for him.  He took those two days off and his wrist has not hurt since.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
