K2's pretty much on, though it doesn't have to hurt when you grip a disc for it to be tendonitis/Tennis Elbow. You'll know if you throw just once though - it will burn.

RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and light stretching before bed and when you wake up. You can take anti-inflammatories for a short stint as well. There are PT band exercises you can do in steadily increasing increments to build strength so that you don't re-aggravate the injury.

I'm actually dealing with a mild case right now - I had to sub for a couple practices as QB of my flag football team. I play WR so my arm isn't used to the throwing motion, and after 2 days of practice my elbow and bicep burn for 20 minutes if I just throw one ball.
