PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Guard CJ McCollum was inadvertently left off the Trail Blazers' active roster that was turned in before Wednesday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, making him ineligible to play.

The Blazers initially said it was an error and McCollum was indeed active, but then Allen Crabbe started in his place.

McCollum was dressed and on the Blazers' bench at the start of the game. Luis Montero, listed as active on the roster, was in street clothes. Late in the second quarter, the team announced that McCollum was inactive for the game, and Montero was active.

McCollum is second on the Blazers with 21 points per game.

The Clippers mistakenly left Danny Granger off the active list in a March 2014 game against the Pelicans and he had to sit.
