Some questions about vj and injuries?

It's been nearly 3 months since I rolled my ankle and hurt my ligament... It is nearly healed and i can do workouts and etc.
But the problem is, my ankle feels slightly sore and somewhat stressed after vj workouts and hard training of basketball.
During training, there are no pain to just tiny bit of pain, so i don't think it's a big deal.
I really wanted to improve in my basketball and most of all, improve my vj so i can dunk by next season (which starts at about march-april)
The question i'm trying to ask is, should i keep on training? Is my ankle injury sore because i'm training too hard or from the training itself?
Should i completely not use my ankle and don't train until my ankle is completely healed?-And what would happen to my vertical?

And just a random question, i started vertical jump bible and completed first worktout, and recently got flying in four and i really wanted to try that.
Do you recommend flying in four (or is it a good program?) And would you recommend doing flying in four first then move on to vjb?

Sorry if there are too many questions!
Thanks!

I know the answer you probably want to hear is no pain no gain or something like that. But really if it's in pain than stop training. If you keep training on it the injury is just going to get worse and you might end up hurting other parts of your body since their using/exerting/absorbing etc. more force than their supposed to. They exert more force  because they are compensating for the ankle. E.g your knees will take more strain when you're ankles are in pain and than you might end up with knee problems etc. Plus the quicker you let it rest the quicker it's going to repair.
If I were you I'd just keep playing basketball coz that'll help strengthen the ankle but give the vj stuff a rest until the ankle is better.

"IMO, It didn't happen if it's not on vid/official"- adarqui

It's easier to keep up than it is to catch up...

Thank you for the advice.
But it my case, it hurts more when i play basketball ( i think its because i play too hard. Because i like to play with speed)
So do you think i should just play lightly?
And what should i do to maintain my vertical?

Thanks!
