going to start plyo's soon

Been waiting a year to start plyo's, but never gotten down to near 10% bf.  However, strength has gone up from 225 to 315 squat.  So currently I am around 175-177 @ 18% bf.

I planned on getting my plyo's from bball, but my ankle is tender for full court games (too muc change of direction).  It will take a long time for ankle to heal because it is a tendon strain.  But it is at 80%, and plyos are okay.

I plan on adding 4 x 5 depth jumps 2x a week, and box step up jumps 3 x 10.

Is this okay?
33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB

IMO, no. If you can't play full court basketball then plyos are too much - they are pretty intense on your ankles. Also, you're still pretty fat really - it's just dead weight that will be contributing to your ankle problems. Why not just rehab properly until ankle's at 100% and cut fat in the meantime with good diet, weights and non-weight bearing cardio (bike, cross-trainer etc)?
