Spurs' Parker cleared to play in OlympicsJul 6, 2012 - 3:47 PM Paris, France (Sports Network) - San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker has been cleared to play for France in the upcoming London Olympics after suffering an eye injury last month.
The French Basketball Federation said on its website Friday that Parker was cleared by the Spurs' medical staff.
Parker injured his eye during a bottle-throwing fight involving singers Chris Brown and Drake at a New York City nightclub in mid-June.
This past season, Parker averaged team highs of 18.3 points and 7.7 assists in 60 games for the Spurs. He also led the team with averages of 20.1 points and 6.8 assists in the playoffs, which ended with a loss to Oklahoma City in the Western Conference finals.
France will open Olympic play on July 29 against the United States.
