Leaked nude photos alleged to be of Stephen Curry posted on Twitter early Friday reportedly don't actually show the Golden State Warriors superstar. 

"Of course it's not him," a Warriors source told Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Curry's agent, Jeff Austin, echoed that sentiment to Alex Raskin of the Daily Mail, saying the pictures are "absolutely" not of the two-time NBA MVP.

The original Twitter post has apparently been deleted, though it spread rapidly throughout social media overnight, per Letourneau. Yahoo Sports' Cassandra Negley noted that obtaining private photos through hacking and distributing them is illegal and could constitute a federal crime.

Curry is currently out of the Golden State lineup after undergoing hand surgery following an injury in late October. He averaged 20.3 points, 6.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds in four games before the injury.

He received a three-month recovery timetable, but the Warriors are likely to play it safe with the face of the franchise with an eye toward the future given their NBA-worst 5-24 record.
