For today while the vet is closed, rest your dog. Just take him out to use the bathroom and maybe two 5 minute walks. If you have any anti-inflammatory medicine you can give that too. If his appetite is normal and he seems like his normal self except for the limp, he'll be OK for the day. If he's yelping, whining or you see redness or inflammation then I'd find an emergency vet.
