Ugh, you're right, he got hurt at the worst possible time - just inside the 24-day LTIR limit before the deadline on the 28th. If he'd been hurt in the last game he played, he could've gone on LTIR and been off in time, but the injury happened four days later and two outside the window.
Well, we're screwed if anyone else gets a short-term injury, then. Tanev's $900k cap hit might have to go down for somebody cheaper if we need the extra couple hundred thousand for another body.
