Adjusting to partial fingers

Setting: A fictional town with 1950s technology, including medical care
Character: 14 year old boy
Injury: There was a mishap with fireworks causing him to lose the top two joints of his right ring finger and the top joint of his right pinkie. He also has second degree burns on the stumps and areas near them.

Searches: "partial finger amputation", the Wiki page on amputation

Questions:
- About how long would it take for the burns around to heal?
- What's the pain level like after amputated digits?
- What sort of things will he have trouble with as he's healing or afterwards? He likes basketball, so I assume that would become harder without all his fingers to control the ball. Yes, it's his dominant hand.

Any help is appreciated, even if it's just search terms.
