I play sports also my doctor told me not to give myself a insulin shot before I play any sport because it may cause a low and check my BG after I'am done playing

Only if you let it!
You just have to make sure that you have ingested an adequate supply of carbohydrates for the duration of the sport that you are participating in.
It's always best to consume carbohydrates within 45-60 minutes before the start of the physical activity, during and immediately after the activity.

Lower the dosage of your insulin, or diabetes medication to prevent from experiencing a low, your muscles will quickly use up the glucose in your bloodstream whenever you are physically active, also to be on the safe side, always have your blood glucose meter present, as well as any medication and emergency contact numbers, with that being said,"Go get 'em."
