I had a spoke broken off in a crash and it looks like the force of it being broken off ate out part of the spoke receiving hole on the hub (pictures of undamaged spoke holes as well).

How much out of true did the wheel go with the absent/broken spoke? Since you will likely have to go through
a shop to replace the spoke I would rely on their opinion, but depending on what the spoke head looks like
related to the slot, I might be willing to try a build up with a new spoke and see what happens. Of course that
is on the basis that the wheel can be trued and the out of true wheel was rideable. If not then the hub is toast.
