Wrecked, wont shift past neutral

So about a month ago i had my first(and hopefully last) spill, went off the road through a turn at about 50mph, figured i would be able to keep her up, until i saw the drop off, next thing i know im looking at the sky about 40-50 feet from where i left the road with my bike laying next to me.

I got a major wrist fracture(now i have a wrist full of titanium) and she just got a dented gas tank and the headlight and instrument cluster banged up.

My dad was able to come out and ride it home but the problem is it doesn't shift past neutral, theres the same amount of play in the shift lever(back and forth away from the engine) as before i wrecked, but when trying to shift there seems to be a decent amount more travel in the lever my dad is convinced its because the shift lever is bent and a new shift lever is all thats needed but im not 100% on that, theres no abnormal noise when the bike is on or under power nor is there any noise when trying to shift, it just wont go past neutral... Any ideas on what i should look for?
