In brief: Yes

If you sprain your small toe you may favor the way you walk and cause a compensatory pain in the ball of the foot.
The swelling from the toe will add additional pressure to the area.

In brief: No

When you sprain your toe you generally will walk with your toe elevated to prevent pain from ground pressure .
In doing this the ball of your feet becomes more prominent , which will increase ground pressure and cause the ball to hurt.
