No, that can only be earned if the team asks for it by January 15th (before he was injured).

I was about to say that it would make total symmetry if we were denied the injury exception because Rondo was injured a week or two too late.

Kind of hilarious, really.

It doesn't matter anyway, because we're basically capped out.  It's not like we would have been able to add an impact player.

Here, I don't think the league could give us a break if they wanted to.

Plus we have the bi-annual at our disposal, if we could still use it the only thing it would help is that the injury exception would let us keep the bi-annual for next year (which I'm not sure we'd be able to use next year anyways depending on cap considerations).

Come on that was ridicules! A guy dies and it still counts on the cap? One of my top reasons for hating the NBA, if I was not a Celtic fan that would have been the end for me. (still p---ed about it lol) >:(

Not sure why everyone is so worried about this. We still have more guards than we have minutes for.

The injury would have had to happen (and the team would have had to apply) before January 15th.  At this point in the season, they could only get an exception for next season, and that would only be if Rondo were deemed to be out all of next year. 

Its too bad too, because you can use it for a trade for a guy in the last year of his contract, which I hadn't realized:

Quote
The team may trade for a player in the last season of his contract only (including any option years), who is making no more than 50% plus $100,000 of the disabled player's salary, or the amount of the Non-Taxpayer Mid-Level exception plus $100,000, whichever is less.

I wonder, how many useful players on $2.6 million or less expiring contracts are there out there?

$2.6 million?  Wouldn't it be $5.1 million?  Rondo makes $11 million per year, so the exception would have been the non-taxpayers mid-level exception.

Or are you talking about the hard cap?

Hard cap, we only have 2.6 million worth of room with the apron.
