I have a large crow's nest which I want to transfer but I broke part of the big root but it still has the little roots around it. Will it still grow?

It is hard to say without seeing the damage. Depending on exactly how much broke off, it could die, or it could survive.
I will say that it has a greater chance of dying since large cuts to the roots will usually invite infections. I would treat the wound with a fungicide before trying to replant.
