I had an ankle injury, which has gotten worse and it hurts to walk, and now my knee on the same leg is hurting. Could the knee pain be b/c the ankle?

In brief: Yes.

The mechanics of walking are off with an injured ankle.
It would be easy to also injure the knee in that way. Time to see a physician, xray if indicated, maybe a walking cast, at least compression bandage, crutches to take some of the weight off the leg if no walking cast perhaps, ice, rest, elevation. Exercise via swimming for now.
