Importing XML workflow by mistake

Hi, I made a mistake with an XML workflow I imported : I did not ensure that all the statuses existed before importing it.

Consequences : I can't get rid of this workflow in my workflow scheme. I would like to assign another workflow to my issue type, but while publishing changes I get a error : 

java.lang.NullPointerException

How could I repair my mistake please ?

Thank you mery much for your help

Camille
