The 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cp is barely a week old and the league has already imposed a number of fines on multiple players.

New Globalport center Mo Tautuaa took the brunt of the first batch of fines this conference as the former no. 1 pick was slapped with a P35,000 penalty for his actions against TNT during Sunday's opener.

Mo was ejected from the game following a "kicking incident" against KaTropa import Jeremy Tyler. Following a dunk, Tautuaa appeared to kick Tyler as he was hanging from the rim.

Tautuaa's fine was based from a flagrant foul penalty 1 and a flarant foul penalty 2 he received from the KaTropa game. On top of that, Mo is suspended for the Batang Pier's outing against Meralco Friday.

Other players getting fines were Globalport import Malcolm White (P5,000 for F1), TNT's Don Trollano (P5,000 for F1), Allein Maliksi (P5,000 for F1), and Joseph Gabayni (5,000 for F1).
