I also dont think teams use that as a reason to get rid of a player. Only fans have that train of thought. The team has 2 things in mind. Winning, and the business aspect. If they decide that he can no longer help the team, whether healthy or not, then yea, I could definitely see them terminating the contract. but, damn that would cost them a ton of $
As of right now, I have no idea what they'll do.
