Anigbogu was waived by the Pacers on Thursday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
The Pacers traded the Rockets for Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin on Thursday, and while the team is waiving both players, they still had to clear a spot on the roster to officially acquire them before doing so. Anigbogu has mainly been a fixture in the G League this year, and he will likely return to Fort Wayne to play with the Mad Ants once he clears waivers.
Anigbogu (knee) returned to action Friday in the G League Fort Wayne Mad Ants' 123-105 loss to the Grand Rapids Drive. He sat out the second half of the back-to-back sat Saturday in the Mad Ants' 107-92 loss to the Lakeland Magic.
It's unclear if Anigbogu was sidelined Saturday just as a precaution coming off the injury or if it was a result of a setback suffered in Friday's contest. The second-year center is averaging just shy of a double-double across 17 appearances this season for Fort Wayne with 11.2 points (on 46.4 percent shooting from the field) and 9.9 boards per game.
Anigbogu (knee) did not play in Tuesday's win over the Mad Ants.
Anigbogu has split time with the Pacers and Mad Ants this season, averaging 11.9 points and 10.6 rebounds in 16 games with the G League affiliate. Anigbogu will try and make his return Friday.
Anigbogu tallied 13 points ( 5-13 FG, 3-4 FT), 18 rebounds, one assist and one block in the 122-108 win over Stockton on Monday.
Anigbogu completed dominated the glass in his return to the G League, combining with power forward Alize Johnson to record 32 rebounds. A two-way player, Anigbogu has only played 15 games with the team this season, but he's been a force when on the court, totaling 11.7 points, 10.6 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in those contests.
