Florida Gators have suspended guard Scottie Wilbekin indefinitely for an undisclosed breach of team rules, according to Fox Sports.

The announcement was made on Twitter on Monday and no further details regarding Wilbekin's infraction were given.

The 6-ft-2-in point guard was a key cog for the Gators last season, starting 29 of the team's 35 games.

He averaged 9.1 points-per-game and five assists. But the Gators starting point guard has been suspended by the team before - in November 2012, also for a team rule breach.

Wilbekin sat out the first three games of the season for the first infraction.

The Gators may replace Wilbekin with incoming McDonald's All-American recruit Kasey Hill.

Hill may be forced into a prominent role for the Florida team as a freshman, with senior-to-be Wilbekin likely to be suspended for the foreseeable future.

If Wilbekin remains suspended, Rutgers transfer Eli Carter could compete with Hill for the starting spot - if he's granted a waiver to play immediately next term.

NCAA transfer rules usually mandate the player must sit out one season.
