It looks to me that you are having anterior talo fibular ligament injury. I would suggest you to get MRI of the ankle. This will give us idea about your ankle injury and after that you can take opinion from sport injury specialist. If there is any ligament injury then you should get ligament reconstruction . If there is ankle cartilage damage then you would need arthroscopic debridement.
