Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs suffered an eye injury at a New York City nightclub after a fight broke out between rappers Breezy and Drake. Parker received the brunt of a couple shards of glass in his left eye.
Parker will miss seven days but his availability for the Olympics is not in question. France’s pre-Olympic training camp begins next week.
“I was quietly with my friends when a fight broke out,” Parker told French journalists, according to the website. “Bottle started flying everywhere. I tried to protect my girlfiend and I got everything. The cornea was affected. I cannot do anything for seven days. I was lucky. They almost had to give me stitches.”
