Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Tony Parker was cleared to play on the French national basketball team in the London Olympics after suffering an eye injury as a bystander to a nightclub brawl in New York, the team said in a statement on its website.

Parker, a guard who plays for the National Basketball Association’s San Antonio Spurs, underwent surgery after a shard of glass penetrated his left eye when the entourages of hip-hop artists Drake and Chris Brown clashed last month in Manhattan.

A four-time All-Star and three-time NBA champion, Parker has averaged 16.8 points and 5.9 assists per game in his 11-year

career, spent entirely with the Spurs.
