It is hard to say without the benefit of an exam and xray. If it seems like it was mild, you could rest, elevate and ice it. If it seems more severe I would be seen to rule out a more serious injury such as a fracture; particularly if you can not bear weight on it.

Fractures are best diagnosed with an xray. If you are concerned and the pain has not subsided I recommend getting an exam for the proper diagnosis and treatment for you!
