Phoenix Pulse will not have the services of Calvin Abueva for the foreseeable future.

The enigmatic forward was slapped with an indefinite suspension by the Philippine Basketball Association after two incidents in a span of two days.

Against Blackwater last Friday, Abueva was caught saying profanities at and doing sexual gestures towards a fan. The fan was later identified as Ray Parks’ girlfriend, Maika Rivera.

Two days later against TNT, Abueva clocked TNT import Terrence Jones with a clothesline moments after a no-call went against him. It resulted to a flagrant foul two.

With this, the league decided to suspend him plus handing him a PHP 70,000 fine — 50,000 for the hit and 20,000 for the incident with Rivera.
