Quincy Acy played just four minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.
The last time we saw Acy, he was receiving MVP chants in the fourth quarter at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. Tonight, coach Derek Fisher decided to play 13 guys and give the bench big-man minutes to Lance Thomas and Lou Amundsen. Neither of those two guys are likely going to last past the All-Star break, but Acy's upside isn't too high to begin with. If you picked him up based on Saturday, you can probably let him go.

Quincy Acy received MVP chants in the fourth quarter of Saturday's embarrassing 110-82 loss to the Hornets, scoring 18 points with one rebound, two steals and three 3-pointers.

A couple of summers ago, Acy spent some time working on his 3-point shot because he wanted to play more small forward. Now, it's starting to pay dividends with two multiple-trey games in his last four. This line is mostly due to garbage time, so Acy isn't a great add in standard leagues yet. Plus, Amare Stoudemire could come back on Thursday.
Jan 10 - 5:02 PM

Quincy Acy played 31 minutes in an ugly 120-96 loss on Thursday with 11 points, five rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

Acy does have a couple blips on the radar in 2015, but his body of work in his career doesn't bode well for a breakout. Before tonight, he only has a 13.5 usage rate, a 13.5 percent rebound rate and only has 0.3 blocks per game in his 22.2 minutes per game on the season. He's only a deep league target.
Jan 8 - 11:29 PM

Quincy Acy hit just 2-of-8 shots for four points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Wizards.

The minutes were nice, but despite the extra run he's going to get for the depleted Knicks, it's important to remember that he's still Quincy Acy. He's probably worth owning right now, but you'll have to learn to take the bad with the good with him.
Jan 7 - 9:45 PM

Quincy Acy was the lone bright short off the bench against the Grizzlies on Monday, making 7-of-8 from the field for 19 points with 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

The other three bench guys were a combined 7-of-24 while Acy posted a sterling 100.0 effective field goal percentage. Garbage time was a factor, but Acy should be in line for minutes in the 20s. He's obviously not going to be this good and is only worth a look in deeper leagues for now.
Jan 5 - 11:22 PM

Quincy Acy played well vs. the Bucks on Sunday, finishing with nine points, seven boards, two assists and two steals in 28 minutes.

He was well on his way to a double-double before getting into foul trouble, so the line could have been better. Acy did have a vicious dunk over Giannis Antetokounmpo in this one, but even that wasn't enough to help the Knicks avoid their 11th straight loss. Given the amount of injuries the Knicks are dealing with, Acy is worth a look in deeper leagues for short-term value.
Jan 4 - 10:51 PM

Quincy Acy will replace Jason Smith in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

Acy hasn't been worth using even when starting, so this news doesn't mean much. Leave him on the waiver wire.
Jan 4 - 6:04 PM

Quincy Acy nearly double-doubled with nine points, nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes off the bench in Friday's blowout loss.

Acy hasn't done much with a relatively healthy 21.4 mpg this season, so there's no need to pay much attention to the sporadic outbursts.
Jan 3 - 12:38 AM

Quincy Acy returned from his one-game suspension on Sunday, coming off the Knicks' bench for 12 points, four rebounds, one assist and a pair of 3-pointers.

Acy came in with season averages of 5.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks in 21 minutes per game, including 19 starts at the forward spots. The 24-year-old fills a niche for New York, but he simply doesn't have enough statistical upside for use in typical fantasy formats. Don't be fooled by his 2-of-2 mark from downtown, either, as he now has six 3-pointers in his three-year career.

Quincy Acy will return from his one-game suspension and he will play on Sunday against Portland.

He was suspended for throwing a punch towards John Wall on Christmas but later admitted his mistakes. "I fouled him hard. The foul was unnecessary," Acy said. "I didn’t have to foul him that hard. Which is why I kept walking towards him and was about to help him up. He got up and pushed. Anybody’s initial reaction is to react. But then I stopped myself and tried to grab him." The Knicks will be glad to have their enforcer back on the court, though his limited role leaves him off of the fantasy radar in most leagues.

Quincy Acy (suspension) will not play on Saturday vs. the Kings.

He was ejected on Christmas for throwing a punch at John Wall, so his minutes will be soaked up by the likes of Amare Stoudemire, Travis Wear, and Jason Smith. Acy will be able to play on Sunday vs. Portland, but his value is limited to extremely deep leagues.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 09:52:00 AM

Quincy Acy has been suspended for one game by the league for his Christmas Day altercation with John Wall.

Acy will miss Saturday's game vs. Sacramento, so there will be more minutes to go around for Amare Stoudemire, Travis Wear, and Jason Smith. John Wall has received a $15,000 fine for his part in the ordeal.

Quincy Acy was ejected from the Knicks' Christmas Day game vs. the Wizards for throwing a punch at John Wall, and he'll likely be facing a suspension from the league.

Acy hasn't been worth using in almost any league with averages of 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game this season, so if he's suspended it's not going to mean much. Expect more minutes to go to Amare Stoudemire, Jason Smith, and Carmelo Anthony. If you missed the altercation, you can click the link below.

Quincy Acy will draw the start for the Knicks again on Sunday vs. the Raptors.

He was worthless in his previous start on Friday, failing to score in just 17 minutes. Acy belongs on the waiver wire in almost all leagues.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 07:48:00 PM

Quincy Acy played just 12 minutes off of the bench in Friday's loss to the Hornets, finishing with five points, four boards and one 3-pointer.

He has started 11 games this season, and just came off of a 15 point performance on Thursday so it was frustrating to see him fall back down to earth again. This kind of inconsistency will make him very tough to own in standard leagues, but owners looking for a cheap daily play should be on alert every time he starts.
