Nobody on the plane was injured, however, the plane was left with a huge dent in the nose. The team landed safely at Chicago's Midway Airport after 1:00 a.m.

Per Young, a Thunder official said there was nothing "extreme or out of the ordinary" about the flight that would have led to the plane's nose being damaged.

Multiple players took to social media to post about the freaky situation, but the team said everyone is safe and sound, and the flight landed as planned and on schedule at Midway International Airport.

Following their loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the team flew from Minneapolis to Chicago, where they will play the Bulls on Saturday night.

A spokesperson for Delta Airlines said the charter flight "likely encountered a bird while on descent into Chicago" and that maintenance was evaluating the plane and the incident. "Safety is Delta's top priority".

Thunder player Steven Adams tweeted to NASA and scientists Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye: "30,000 feet in the air ..."

"What possibly could we have hit in the SKY at this time of night?" player Carmelo Anthony asked in his post on Instagram.

After disembarking, National Basketball Association stars Carmelo Anthony and Josh Huestis posted pictures of the damage to social media.
