PARIS, July 6 San Antonio Spurs's French point
guard Tony Parker has recovered from an eye injury and will be
fit to take part in the London Olympics, his national basketball
federation said on Friday.
"Two eye specialists sent by the San Antonio Spurs have
confirmed the opinion of the French doctor who had operated on
Tony Parker and said he was fit to resume competition," the FFBB
said on their website (www.ffbb.com).
Parker had to undergo surgery to remove a shard of glass
from his eye, which he was also at risk of losing.
The FFBB said that Parker would soon join the French team
from Atlanta, Georgia, were he had his eye examined by the two
ophtalmologists, adding he could play a few minutes of France's
game against Britain on Saturday.
"It's a great news and a relief for the France team," coach
Vincent Collet said.
