what are the chances my grade 2 ankle sprain will heal in a month?

Pretty good: Ankle ligaments take about six weeks to fully heal. In a month, you should be feeling pretty good with no limitations in day to day activities. High demand activities such as soccer, basketball, etc may still cause soreness. Modify activity pain permitting.
