Ike Anigbogu is back for another stint with the Indiana Pacers, though it looks like the center won’t be seeing any actual game minutes after being recalled from the NBA G League on Wednesday.

Anigbogu, 20, has appeared in only three games with the Pacers this season but has played well during his frequent opportunities with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. A 2017 second-round draft pick out of UCLA, Anigbogu is averaging 11.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.9 blocks over 21 Mad Ants games this season.

Shortly after announcing Anigbogu’s call-up, the Pacers released their injury report for Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers, listing Anigbogu as out with a sore left knee.

Doug McDermott was also listed on the report as out with a rib injury.
