If there is bruising, of if you are having trouble putting weight on it then you should try and get an x-ray to make sure nothing is broken. If there is no bruising, or bruising is minimal, then putting ice on it for 10 - 15 minute increments and minimizing activity on that ankle is your best bet to a quick recovery.
