Supraspinatus might be a good place to start (especially if you can do something like lying dumbbell external rotations pain-free) but diagnosing injuries is not so simple.
Cool, thanks. This sounds about right.

I forgot to mention that yes, I can do external rotations (not lying, I do them standing) with my arm in adduction completely pain free.
