An ankle injury can take a long while to recover; and if not taken care of at the beginning can cause problems for a lifetime. Besides muscles and tendons there is cartilage which as you get older can be an issue.
However, if the pain is from extended, over use, or ramping up your game you might consult a PT to figure out some strengthening, stretching and range of motion exercises to beef up/deal with the issue.
