In the end, owners are better off cutting him loose and fetching a replacement who'll help them more over the course of the season. (And by the way, three months is an abominable amount of time to wait for someone to get healthy, and the odds of someone else immediately picking Profar up are very slim. It's low-risk drop.) If you're in the hunt for a new second baseman, Kelly Johnson, Dee Gordon (eventually), Neil Walker, and Anthony Rendon are all adequate fill-ins, most of whom could still be available in your league. Dan Uggla is also out there, if you have the stomach for him.
