General Workouts with A2 Pulley Injury

I've got my first real finger pulley injury right now and I'm trying to figure out what to do while taking a break from climbing.

I have had pretty nagging elbow tendinitis in the elbow of that same arm, so I'm a bit hesitant to just go hit the (regular) gym and start lifting. Is that something I should be worried about? Do I need to rest from even gripping dumbbells for a while to let the hand heal or is that generally okay if I avoid crimping?

Thinking this might be a good reason to kick of some general conditioning for ice season a lot earlier than usual.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
