San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker was injured during a nightclub brawl in New York City involving singer Chris Brown and members of rapper Drake's entourage.
Parker was in Paris and told what happened during a news conference posted on YouTube and said he expects to be out about a week but should be ready to play for the French national team at the Summer Olympics in London.
Parker, who was with his girlfriend, said he was wearing a therapeutic contact lens and went to an emergency room in Paris for treatment.
"They started throwing bottles everywhere. I don't know what happened," Parker said. "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." The Spurs had no comment.
