San Antonio Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard is once again rehabilitating his injured quadriceps in NY with outside medical personnel, ESPN reported Saturday.

Leonard, 26, is now in NY to rehab his injured leg, and the Spurs have reportedly "grown pessimistic" that the former NBA Finals MVP will still suit up for the team this season, according to CBS Sports' Colin Ward-Henninger.

Even though members of the Spurs staff accompanied him to the Big Apple, it's clear that Leonard and the team have been at odds over his inability to return to the court while San Antonio is engaged in a tight battle to make it into the playoffs.

Leonard initially sought treatment within the organization before consulting with a specialist in NY on January 16.

Bill Cosby's lawyers argue for trial delay
Defense lawyers want them to hear from a woman who says his accuser was out for money. A huge part of Cosby's case from previous year was his admitted use of quaaludes.

During the program, the former National Basketball Association player and current ESPN analyst said he thinks Leonard "has played his final game with the Spurs" and that the latest rumor is "really unfortunate" for both sides. Leonard is eligible for a five-year, $217 million super max contract extension this summer with the Spurs.

"He is not coming back", Ginobili said. Parker elected to utilize the Spurs' doctors while Leonard sought consultation outside the organization, which is a practice the franchise encourages as its goal is to protect the player's long-term future. "You just try to stay positive". He averaged 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks this season.

Parker, meanwhile, has recovered from a ruptured left quadriceps tendon suffered last May, making his season debut in November after 208 days. He has been cleared by team doctors but has not felt 100 percent comfortable on the leg when attempting to play or practice.

Before taking down the Houston Rockets without Leonard on Sunday, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich addressed the topic in front of reporters yet again. "When he and his group feel he's ready, then he'll be ready".

"He's trying to get well", Popovich added.
