Yeah, as a younger fool (now I'm an older fool) I twisted my ankles plenty of times.
As far as I'm concerned (and I'm no expert) it's a matter of safely working range of motion while it is healing. You'll probably find some directions hurt and some don't, but compare it to your good foot and work all directions or planes of motion carefully.
You should be able to notice a difference between "feeling it" and "pain". Pain means don't do that!
The threshold should move pretty quickly over the course of a week or so depending on the severity. For example, you may only use your leg muscles to move it around at first and then later you may push against things to get more stretch force.
In my untrained opinion, if you make sure you keep your range of motion, you'll come out never knowing you sprained it once it is solidly healed up again.
Also, look for what happened. In my youth I wore running shoes that were fairly unstable for things that required a lot of sideways motion, not smart. Alternately, I'd land on something that would twist my ankle. Unlucky. Do what you can to avoid repeats. Maybe you need better shoes? Maybe you were just unlucky?
Finally, suck it up. Stick to bodyweight until you have full range of motion back without discomfort. It won't take long to heal up and what you really don't want is to turn something minor into something major by finding out how much weight is too much the hard way.
