What happens with the cap if players are injured?

If a team is hit by the injury bug, like LA last season, how much flexibility do they have to trade for replacements under the cap? If your star player taking up 20% of your cap space goes down, are you stuck using minor league replcements? What if you trade a draft pick for a replacement, but then star player makes a miraculous recovery, putting your team over the cap?

I read in a report that said if the player you are bringing in is less then the player lost to injury it does not count .. If the player is more then you do count him ..

Also consider Insurance .. Large contracts are covered by insurance .. After a period of time on a long term injury Insurance kicks in and pay the contract .. Insurance money is not team money so that would not count against the team cap and that time either ..but the replacement you brought in would ..

OK, but what about the long term problem of trading for a replacement, and then going over the cap when your team is healthy again?

Basically TSN had a report that said all that is required by any team is that at the end of the season your total team Salary would have to be below the cap in spending .. If a player is coming of IR then you have to make room anyway on the roster as you can only cary 23 players max .. So you have to either waive, trade, send to the minors etc to get your team to CBA limits.

Most injuries would likely be covered by AHL callups and if they are season ending would you then replace them ..
