In brief: Absolutely

Pain in any leg joint (hip, knee or ankle) can be caused by a problem with that or any other leg joint.
In the case of the ankle, a knee injury can change the angle at which the knee works, putting stress on the ankle and causing pain.

In brief: Possibly

If you are compensating for the knee pain, there are times when patients complain of other issues such as ankle pain.
