Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs got a scratch on his retina from the fight between Chris Brown and Drake that has taken national headlines. Brown and Drake have been speaking to police about the brawl, which took place at a New York night club.
Parker was wearing sunglasses when he told the press about what happened to him. He described the incident while doing a press conference in Paris. He said that he expects to be on the sideline for a week as the team from France prepares for the Olympics.
Parker said that he’s wearing “therapeutic” contact lenses and had to get emergency room treatment for his injuries.
“I was with my friend Chris Brown and me and my friends took some punches, so I’ll be missing the start of the French team because I can’t do anything for a week except keep the lens in and then take drops,” he said.
“They started throwing bottles everywhere. I don’t know what happened. At first it was OK, but then it started getting worse and when the plane landed it was really hurting so I went straight to the ER.”
