Acy (ankle) said he expects to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Pacers, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.
Acy returned to full practice Sunday and indicated his right ankle felt fine afterward, so he doesn't appear at much risk of missing the opener. The Mavericks will turn to Acy to provide some three-point shooting at the power-forward spot off the bench, but he's unlikely to see extended minutes so long as starter Dirk Nowitzki and top backup Dwight Powell remain healthy.
Acy (ankle) was a participant in Sunday's practice, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Acy missed the Mavericks' final two preseason games while working back from a sprained right ankle, but his availability for Sunday's practice seems to indicate it's feeling much better.

Acy, who sat out Tuesday's win over the Thunder with the injury with a sprained right ankle, will get a few days off to recover, but the Mavericks don't believe he's dealing with a serious setback. The expectation is that he'll be ready to go for the start of the regular season, filling a depth role in the team's frontcourt. In moving from the Kings to the Mavericks this offseason, Acy shouldn't be expected to see much of an increase from the 14.8 minutes per game he received in 2015-16.
Acy is sporting a walking boot on his right foot, but as Carlisle suggested, the team doesn't believe he'll be sidelined for long. The forward, who signed a two-year, $2.2 million contract with the
