I don't really update it much once the season gets going. There's just too many variables that make it inaccurate.
The pro-rated cap hits of all the callups for the games they played. Pro-rated cap hits for players traded away, and traded for. LTIR(if they were anywhere close to the cap ceiling). Certain bonuses, though this only comes into affect once it's impossible to reach a certain bonus. Like if Lando had a bonus that required him to play 60 games, and missed 23+ games, then his cap hit would be reduced by that amount.
It's much closer to being accurate before the seasons starts, to see how close they are to cap floor or ceiling, since they must comply by the start of the season. Or early on the season to use as a reference point for possible trades, and a place to discuss team building from a cap perspective.
I'll make next years, once the Avs season is over. Definitely worth discussing here though, to throw out hypothetical rosters with their cap implications.
