San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker was included on the 12-man roster for France's Olympic basketball team despite a left eye injury that could keep him sidelined.

Parker suffered a scratch to his cornea in a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake's entourage in a New York nightclub last month.

A final decision on his participation in the London Olympics is expected to be announced in the coming days after Parker meets with the Spurs' medical staff.

France will be missing Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, who is still recovering from a left ankle injury he sustained during the NBA playoffs.

France's first game at the Olympics is against the United States on July 29.
