The league said Friday that Wall was fined $15,000 for escalating the confrontation by pushing Acy. The NBA said that Acy's flagrant foul 2 initiated the altercation in Washington's 102-91 victory Thursday.
Wall was dribbling up the court when Acy knocked him down with a forearm shove with 5:31 left in the fourth quarter. Wall got up and pushed Acy, who swung his arm and appeared to hit Wall behind the neck. Acy was ejected and Wall was given a techincal.
Acy will miss the Knicks' game at Sacramento on Saturday. New York acquired the forward from the Kings last summer.
The signing was announced by General Manager Daryl Morey and reunites the 6-foot-9 forward with AAU teammate and longtime friend Dwight Howard, who is in his second season in Houston.
