Not enough info: This question needs to be answered by an orthopedist after evaluating your ankle.

Have it evaluated.: If you have significant pain, you should rest the area. Ankle braces do help support the area by applying compression and restricting the range of motion. Consult with your physician as to whether or not and how long you should use an ankle brace for your type of injury. You should limit aggressive play if you have any significant pain when weight bearing.
