Tony Parker could miss Olympics due to eye injury

PARIS (AP) - NBA star Tony Parker may miss the London Olympics after almost losing his eye in a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake's entourage.

Parker's cornea was scratched in the fight, and the San Antonio Spurs guard has revealed he had to have an operation to remove a shard that had "penetrated 99 percent" of his left eye.

Parker will see a specialist in New York when he is cleared to take long-haul flights after July 5.

He says "anything can happen" and the decision is now in the hands of the doctor and San Antonio.
