If it is not blooming, yes. Make sure to give it superthrive or B-1 and water to ease the plant shock.

I have had some of mine blow over from a strong gust of wind and completly fall apart, then pick it up of the ground barerooted from the fall at this time, and still grow well after repotting...:-).
Personally, I think they are very strong willed to live, even after all the abuse...

If the plant goes into shock the leaves will wilt and sometimes fall off. This is why I usually transplant at the beginning of spring when there are no leaves and the roots are just starting up again.

I think the spring is the best time to repot because it is still dormant. I accidentally ripped most of the roots off my Plumeria "divine" in the spring (still dormant) while repotting, and other than comming up a little slower, it had no ill effects.

Good luck
