Bad fall on my knees, resulted in bloody contusions and bad bruising on 7/3.On 7/6 my Lt ankle is little swollen.Is this NML for a delayed swelling reaction? Or something more worrisome?

In brief: Two possibilities

One possibility is you could have injured ankle with the fall but I suspect the second possibility is more likely and that is that you had swelling in your knee you got what’s called a Baker’s cyst with swelling on the back of the knee then down the leg.
the question I have is whether you see any blood coloration on that leg
