Tony Parker suffered an eye injury last month when he got caught in the middle of a fight featuring rappers Chris Brown and Drake, leaving the San Antonio Spurs point guard unsure if he'd be able to play in the upcoming 2012 London Olympics.
An eye exam Thursday revealed Team France will still have the services of its top player. A press release, courtesy of USA Today, noted that everyone available said Parker's eye was healed enough to allow him to play in London.
"The two ophthalmologists (from the Spurs) confirmed the opinion of the French doctor who operated on Tony Parker, and the two Swiss specialists who also examined the player last Thursday, and indicated that he can resume playing," the French Basketball Federation said on Friday, adding that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich also gave his blessing.
Considering his NBA team, his national team and two independent specialists have all given their blessing, Parker's eye shouldn't be a problem as France looks for Olympic glory.
