Rolled ankle, how long should I wait?

I rolled my ankle pretty badly last Friday. It feels ok now...I'd say about 80-90%. When will it be ok to start working out again? I would really at least like to start jogging again, but don't wanna risk extending the healing time. Also, how long should I wait before I start doing lower body weights like squats and so-on?

I would give it at least a week and probably two before I would start hitting it hard again. If it doesn't heal completely and properly it will continue to bother you for years.

Had a brace on it for a couple days. Went and played a little roundball. Felt fine until one of my friends landed on it after a layup. I'm gonna try and run tomorrow, but I won't force anything.

Gradually start moving back in to your routine. Once you're pain free walking, try running a mile and see how it feels during the run and over the next couple of days. If it feels good, step it up a little more next time you run, etc. Rolled ankles are the debbil.

my ankles been rolled quite a few times after about a week and half or so if your ankle is feeling fine to walk on, try light jogging. once your fine with that and no pain you'll be more than good for running again.

Ran a little over a mile today and I could feel it but it wasn't "pain" or anything. I think I'm start back with the upperbody weights on Monday, and hopefully the following week I'll be able to do the lowerbody weights without any trouble.
