steps: :Rule 7.3 says: It is permitted

to take a maximum of 3 steps with the ball (13:1a);

one step is considered taken when:

a) a player who is standing with both feet on the oor lifts one foot and puts it down again, or moves one foot from one place to another;

b) a player is touching the oor with one foot only, catches the ball and then touches the oor with the other foot;

c) a player after a jump touches the oor with one foot only, and then hops on the same foot or touches the oor with the other foot;

d) a player after a jump touches the oor with both feet simultaneously, and then lifts one foot and puts it down again, or moves one foot from one place to another.

Comment: It is in conformance with the rules, if a player with the ball falls to the oor, slides and then stands up and plays the ball. This is also the case, if a player dives for the ball, controls it and stands up to play it.
