You should not move a broken ankle.

In brief: Depends on type
There are many types of ankle fractures ranging from stable to unstable.
Stable fracture patterns allow patients, when comfortable, to weightbear and move the ankle without causing any damage. The unstable fractures require immobilization and sometimes surgery as well.
