There were concerns about Tony Parker’s availability for the Olympic Games this summer in London, immediately following the eye injury he suffered during a nightclub brawl. The doctors, though, have given TP the green light to take part in the Games. Per Reuters:

Parker had to undergo surgery to remove a shard of glass from his eye, which he was also at risk of losing. The FFBB said that Parker would soon join the French team from Atlanta, Georgia, were he had his eye examined by the two ophtalmologists, adding he could play a few minutes of France’s game against Britain on Saturday.”
