Hours after he was accused of sending an inappropriate photo to a woman, Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was ruled out of Wednesday's game against New Orleans due to food poisoning.

Earlier Wednesday, the agent for Cousins denied allegations this his client sent a nude photo to a woman in a text message.

The photo in question started to show up on Internet websites Tuesday.

"Rest assured that DeMarcus Cousins has not sent any nude photos to any woman at any time," said John Greig, Cousins' agent, in a statement. "Allegations that he has and internet websites that are reporting such are erroneous. These websites should take the images claiming to be DeMarcus down and apologize.

"It is a sad reflection of where our culture is that someone can send and post these type of things without any accountability."

Cousins, who is averaging 16.2 points and 11.4 rebounds, was not at the team's shootaround Wednesday morning.

Kings head coach Keith Smart said the team is aware of the situation and is letting Cousins' representatives handle it.
