Parker's cornea was scratched in the fight, and the San Antonio Spurs guard has revealed he had to have an operation to remove a shard that had "penetrated 99 percent" of his left eye.
Parker says, "I almost lost my eye," adding, "I hallucinate. I just spent eight days trapped in my hotel. I was not allowed out to prevent infection. I was so afraid that I have not left my room. I asked myself many questions. I cannot believe that happened to me a month before the Games. Every two hours, I have five different products to put in the eye."
He did not join the rest of France's team recently and will see a specialist in New York when he is cleared to take long-haul flights after July 5. The Olympics get under way on July 27, and Parker would be a key player on the French team.
Paker says "anything can happen, including me being out of the Olympics," adding that "the decision doesn't belong to me anymore. It's in the hands of the doctor and San Antonio."
The 30-year-old athlete, meanwhile, is suing the nightclub for a reported $20 million in connection with the melee.
