It sounds like you won't save any capspace.
IE, lets say you are at 68.2m. Normally, if you had been at 68.2m on avg for half the year exactly, you can take on a 4m contract at the half point. The wording I've seen sounds exactly like the long term injury exception. An injured player counts against the cap, but you can spend over the cap by the amount the injured player makes. But you don't save up on cap space for an injured player.
