Tony Parker hurt in Chris Brown, Drake club brawl

June 16, 2012 - New York

NBA player Tony Parker has revealed that he suffered a scratched retina in one of his eyes in a nasty bar brawl that involved singer Chris Brown and Drake over Rihanna at a New York club.

The 30-year-old San Antonio Spurs guard was inside the Manhattan club W.i.P on Wednesday night after glass bottles were tossed around the bar during the incident.

Eva Longoria's former husband wore dark sunglasses during the news conference where he said that he would be forced due to his injury to be sidelined for a week while the French team would be preparing for the Olympics.

"I was there with a bunch of friends when a fight broke out. They started to throw bottles about. I got it all," quoted Parker as saying.

"The cornea has been touched. I can't do anything for seven days. But I was lucky. The injury won't prevent me from competing in the Olympics in any way," he added.

The basketball player was scheduled to join the French Olympic team on June 20.
