Or swallowing a gigantic cap hit the hard way for a player who's not even playing in a world where the cap will keep shrinking.

If he's not serious enough to keep himself in good shape while being paid $7m a year to do so, even during a lockout, I don't know if that's the kind player you want to carry you in the playoffs anyway.
The injury issue is the ONLY issue here. He needs to be bought out this summer.
