Can you get tendinitis from basketball? : LUSENET : Fitness, Exercise, Sports Injury Recovery : One Thread

Hi. I'm 16 yrs of age and I've been playing basketball since about 3rd grade. I my elbow started to bother me a few months ago and I was wondering if it could be from shooting as much as I do. I go into my gym about 3 times a day and use a shooting machine that we have there and I'm constanly turning my wrist down and pointing my fingers towards my forearm. My question is if I can get tendinitis from shooting too much? Please write back!!! THANKS!
