Miami Heat forward Dorell Wright says he is "embarrassed" that explicit photos of himself have been posted on the Internet.

The photos were taken in a private video chat about a year ago, and appeared on Web sites and several Twitter accounts.

Though the team, Wright issued an apology Monday, saying the matter "is something I truly regret."

The Heat had no comment on the incident.

It's the latest issue for Wright to deal with. He was arrested earlier this month on charges of driving under the influence with a suspended license. The Heat suspended him after that arrest for two games for conduct detrimental to the team.

Wright is averaging 6.4 points in 64 games this season for Miami.
