2024 45-Day Injury/Illness Lists

A player with this designation must stay on the IL for a minimum of 45 days but may remain longer than 45 days if needed. Teams will receive team roster relief (can sign an additional player) but no salary cap relief and any new player signed must fit within the team’s salary cap.

45-Day IL replacement players must be signed prior to the roster freeze date except in ‘exceptional circumstances’

2024 Season-Ending Injust List (SEI)

Teams get salary cap relief and team roster relief (doesn’t count toward 26 player active player limit) as long as a player remains on the SEI list and that relief can continue into the next season until the player is cleared by the team physician.

An injured international player does give the team the ability to replace the player with an international player.

Players with SEI’s from the previous league season can become an active player after medical clearance and as long as there is room on the active roster limit and in the salary cap (relief will stop immediately).

If a player recovers from a SEI in the season in which they got the designation, they can join the active roster as long as the team didn’t use the roster or salary cap relief for the player. (There is a 2 player limit to do this).

2024 Maternity Leave

Like SEI injuries, maternity leave comes with team roster relief and salary cap relief and just as similarly as soon as the player is cleared for participation, the relief ends.
