My ankle popped?
I was playing basketball and came down on someone's foot. My foot rolled for a split second and I heard a pop. I sat down and after a few minutes, I could see some swelling. I drove home and then I took a look at it again (30 minutes passed). It is swollen around/on the ankle bone. It is a little swolen, about the circumference of a golf ball, but it does not swell outward very much. I feel some discomfort but not any type of excruciating pain when walking or doing ankle exercises. I searched on WEBMD and it noted it as being a mild sprain. My question: Should I just wait and go to the hospital in the morning or go to the ER?

Just put an ACE bandage on it and nurse it for a few days. You'll be fine.
