Along the way, their airplane was damaged in mid-air, with the nose of the plane being completely caved in.
Delta Airlines, responsible for operating the Thunder's chartered flight Friday night, has released a statement saying that the plane likely hit a bird during descent.
The cause of the damage is now unknown, but the Thunder's flight landed at Chicago Midway International Airport at approximately 12:46 a.m. CT.
Carmelo Anthony was similarly concerned, posting the same image of the plane's badly dented nose.More news: Bungie denies reports that innocuous apps led to PC Destiny 2 bans

The Thunder made it safely to Chicago early Saturday morning after a 119-116 loss to the Timberwolves, but not without some flight issues. She said the Boeing 757-200 landed safely without incident at Chicago's Midway International Airport.
Delta Airlines spokeswoman Elizabeth Wolf said maintenance was evaluating the situation and the damage was likely caused by a collision with a bird.
The Thunder is scheduled to play the Bulls tonight at the United Center.
