I think we'd be able to help out more if you described it a little better. Where is the pain located (lateral/medial elbow, forearm flexor/ extensor muscles, etc.) What kind of pain? and what kind of movements bother it?
As a generic start I would say make sure you take your elbow and wrist through a variety of motions in warm-up to ensure you increase temperature and help to lubricate the joint a little.
