It could be impingement.

It seems more like tendonopathy or tensynovitis of some of the tendon structures there if it's more anterior. Impingement is usually more lateral.

Does ice or NSAIDs show any improvements at all?

If it's more of a strain then heat + mobility should help. If it tends to be more of impingement then NSAIDs and ice will tend to help more.
