Guard C.J. McCollum was unintentionally broken off the Trail Blazers' active roster that was turned in before Wednesday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers which making Portland's second leading scorer ineligible to play.

"I signed the paper without really noticing it, but it's my fault for not looking at it. Although we caught the error, we thought we'd caught it in time, apparently we did not, so C.J. was ruled inactive, and that's that."

The situation caused confusion at the start of the game. The Blazers initially said it was a mistake and McCollum was indeed active, but then Allen Crabbe started in his place.

McCollum was dressed NBA 2K16 MT cions on the Blazers' bench at the start of the game. Luis Montero, listed as active on the roster, was in street clothes. McCollum retreated to the locker room following the first quarter.

Late in the half, the team announced that McCollum was inactive for the game, and Montero was active.

The team cited a "clerical error in the NBA's active list reporting." Active rosters are due 60 minutes before game time, NBA 2K16 MT are signed by the head coaches. The Blazers contacted the league when they realized the mistake but were told that it was too late to change the roster.

McCollum is second on the Blazers with 21 points per game. He said he was unclear about the situation until the starting lineups were announced in player introductions just before the start. The Clippers mistakenly left Danny Granger off the active list in a March 2014 game against the Pelicans and he had to sit.
