Just confused as I have read several places Caps have lots of space if Green on ltir but little space if he is not.

So if Poti magically came back for the last game of the year they would be 4mil (or whatever he makes) over the cap?
While a player is on LTIR the team can go over the cap by the amount of the cap hit of the injured player, so while Green was on LTIR they could have exceeded the cap by $5.25M. That is likely what was meant by the team having cap space. That is different than "banking" cap space. A team banks cap space if they are under the cap without using LTIR.
