Resting injuries versus doing physio

A friend recently told me that he wouldn’t be able to train because his ankle was still hurting him. This is the same ankle injury he’s had almost all season. He told me he rested the ankle earlier in the season and then it felt better. Once he started training again he hurt it all over again. Now he’s been resting it for almost a month (the second time around). He hasn’t trained at all but says he still feels pain in his ankle.
