if he thought the ankle would be ok for a tournament after less than 2 weeks it will be ok for Australian Open after nearly 4 weeks I think... and remember 2006! Kiwi never played a better Grand Slam than Aussi Open 2006 with his sprained ankle.
Still I would like to have a talk to the guy from the ATP Results website
I already saw Kiwi in Donaustauf getting treatment next to Tommy Haas... So glad that it's "only" the injury we all knew about and it's so nice of him to keep us updated all the time.
