The muscle mechanics of each individual differ. The only way to tell is to do them, and if any soreness results in the joint itself I would discontinue them.
I have incorporated them in my training in the past, and did not experience any problems (this after having shoulder/ rotator cuff surgery for an unrelated matter).
I did find however, especially when doing weighted dips, some joint pain in the elbows.
I think the trick is to do them in a controlled manner, especially on the way down. No bouncing.
