In brief: If there is infectio

If there is infection with the injury it can cause fever - especially if there is infection of bones called osteomyelitis it is worrisome and needed a long term antibiotic treatment.

In brief: Yes, if infected

Direct injuries to a joint that get infected will almost certainly cause a febrile illness.
Urgent appropriate treatment is mandatory to determine if a joint has become septic.
