In brief: Yes

Tennis elbow is usually from an inflammation of a ligament at the elbow joint.
You may be able to find it. If you can feel it, i would recommend massage as well as rest when it starts to hurt. Take your time getting back in to full time drumming. If it doesn't go away, see your doctor.
