Pinched anemone

So recently I was moving some live rock, with a hidden bubble anemone attached to the backside. It moved towards the back during the night. As I was moving the rock I noticed it, shrunk up of course, but I had already pinched it with the back wall. It opens up during the day, but many of the tentacles no longer extend. My question is, will it regenerate, or do I now have a gimp anemone?

This is what it looks like around 1-5 pm. It's a bubble that doesn't bubble.

Yes. People cut anemones into 2 and 4 pieces only to make 2 and 4 anemones. There is a technique to this and I wouldn't recommend just anyone try it, but yes, they do become a full anemone again after some time.
