In brief: Yes!

Tendinitis (correct spelling for docs) can cause a spur to form where it attaches to bone.
Severe tendinitis can weaken the tendon and make it more likely to tear or even rupture. It can be primary, do to mechanical issues, or do to arthritis.

In brief: Absolutely

If left unchecked or chronic, it can lead to tears, scarring, loss of function, and permanent pain.
