Which ankle? If it's the left, even the short game will be a bit tougher. If it's the right, it could actually be good for your short game practice.

Maybe it the fact that I sprained my left ankle about 8 times in my life. I've rolled it twice on the course and finished playing the round. In one case, I actually played another 18 holes that day.

Don't take my example as a good thing to do. If you have doubts, check with a doctor.

It's my right ankle.  Outside of the ankle.

If it's just a sprain it's really about your pain level. If you're doing something and you know you're pushing the pain level then you're only prolonging the healing. But if you're able to practice your short game without significant pain then play on. The outside is your lateral malleolus. Very common site for sprains. If you decide to practice and see how it goes I suggest you put some ice on it when you're done and take some NSAIDS. I also recommend you wear at least an ace wrap while you practice. If you notice bruising appearing after practicing then you're best to hold off for a week or two. Cheers.
