Tony Parker is officially cleared for Olympic play according to Jeff Zillgit of USA Today.
Parker visited with two eye specialists yesterday and everything checked out fine. Here’s a release from ffbb.com:
Two eye specialists sent by the San Antonio Spurs have confirmed the opinion of the French doctor who had operated on Tony Parker and said he was fit to resume competition.
FFBB also noted that Parker would join his French squad from Atlanta, Georgia where his eye was examined by two ophtalmologists. It’s also possible that Parker could garner some playing time in France’s game against Britain tomorrow.
Now … let’s just forget this ever happened, ok?
