Michael Garcia - July 7, 2012

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker has been okayed for play in the upcoming Summer Games, after getting his eye injured during that Chris Brown / Drake nightclub brawl a few weeks back.

Parker initially said he had a scratched cornea and was lucky to escape relatively unharmed, but then said he almost lost an eye because a shard of glass had penetrated 99% of it.

But now he's all good to go and ready to help France's run at a medal. Unfortunately for Tony, Joakim Noah is still dealing with an ankle injury and won't be be able to play for the French team in the Olympics.
