Tony Parker injured his eye Thursday during an altercation between musicians Chris Brown and Drake.

Although he was not directly involved, Tony Parker injured his eye when musicians Chris Brown and Drake got in an altercation at a New York city nightclub Thursday.

Parker, who is currently in France preparing to play for the French national team, told reporters he was hit in the eye by glass during the incident.

"I was there with a bunch of friends when a fight broke out. They started to throw bottles about... I got it all," Parker said in a press conference Friday. "The cornea has been touched. I can't do anything for seven days... But I was lucky. The injury won't prevent me from competing the Olympics in any way."
