Is this common for players who are dismissed from a team but still keep their scholarship?

Jojo is even being allowed to use some of the athletic department facilities for training and academic support for the remainder of the academic year. That is very uncommon. It does happen, but I can not recall or name another case.
I think it shows how much the coaches and AD are trying to be fair and help Jojo, though they are not under any obligation to do so.

A player we discussed here, Johnnie Vassar - a highly rated recruit that went to Northwestern... - was dismissed from the basketball team but stayed at Northwestern for more than two more years.

He even sued Northwestern when two years later, they tried to take his scholarship away

but as of last spring, he was still there - more than 3 years after he left the team...and his lawsuit is still working it's way thru the courts

NOTE- all DI schools have the athlete and his family signs an athletic/scholarship agreement.
The wording of the agreements differ - most scholarships are for ONE YEAR at a time, but now some
schools (like Northwestern) are making their agreements for FOUR YEARS - obviously giving them better
recruiting advantages.
For the most part, the schools cannot yank the scholarship without reason and those reasons are laid out in
the agreement - such as skipping class, flunking out, and objectionable/illegal behavior... So we can each
decide what to believe, but we will never know all the facts as I doubt anyone but the McGlastons and a few
people at Bradley actually know what the terms of his scholarship agreement say and what they decided.
