In brief: Elbow pop

you may not have tendinitis then.
That usually doesnt make the elbow pop. You may have a ligament injury which makes the elbow unstable and causes pops. Or you may have a small loose body inside the joint that causes the elbow to lock then the loose body moves and the elbow unlocks and causes a pop. You may need an MRI to further evaluate your elbow
