Chipped bone in ankle?

Any doctors on these boards?

I took a puck on the ankle about 3 weeks ago. Some mild discoloration maybe, but really no other signs of trauma except some soreness and a bit of swelling. I can walk and exercise on it fine, even skate on it. The only problem is when putting on a skate boot it can rub against the ankle(inside ankle) the wrong way and is fairly sore. If I shift the tongue around a bit so it does not press on it, I dont notice it much though. I can feel something hard in there that will roll back and forth over the bone and I can shift it around a bit. Almost feels like a vein that you can move around... except that it is much bigger than my good ankle and feels like it is solid, not squishy like a vein.

I am thinking that this might be a big bone chip, but I didnt want to overreact and go to the doctor. Also, I admit, I don't want someone to tell me it is something that needs attention right away because I have four games in the next few weeks and would like to play. Has anyone else had something like this?
