In brief: Infection likely
Lymph node involvement indicates an immune response; usually the presence of an infection.
Some infections can enter a joint space, causing pain and swelling, heat and redness.

In brief: See your doc
Swollen lymph nodes associated with joint pain can be due to an infection, immune system disorder (such as rheumatoid arthritis) see your doctor for a physical exam as well as various lab/blood test to evaluate further and rule out other serious diseases.
