If your elbow is hurting it'll probably help reduce recovery time. Then again it would be important to understand why it hurts in the first place.

I wrap my right elbow every time I lift with an ace bandage. I use it to avoid further injury when loading weights ect.
I guess I have tendonitis in both elbows but the right ones worse.

Probably too many skull crushers when I was young, unfortunately that's one exercise I'll never do again.

i use a neoprene elbow support for my left elbow every time I train upper body. Buy one of those, and stop doing any of the exercises that cause pain. You'll probably be able to do pushdowns and close grip presses ok.
