NEW YORK — New York Knicks forward Quincy Acy has been suspended one game without pay by the NBA for his flagrant foul against John Wall in a Christmas game.
The league said that Wall was fined $15,000 for escalating the confrontation by pushing Acy.
The NBA adds that Acy’s flagrant foul 2 initiated an altercation in Washington’s 102-91 victory on Dec. 25. Wall was dribbling up the court when Acy knocked him down with a forearm shove with 5:31 remaining.
Wall got up and pushed Acy, who swung his arm and appeared to hit Wall behind the neck and was ejected.
Acy will miss the Knicks’ game at Sacramento on Dec. 27. New York acquired the forward from the Kings last summer.
