The Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team were caught up in a freaky mid-air incident when their charter plane was struck by an as yet unidentified object on its way to Chicago, damaging the nose cone.

Despite the scary incident, according to WISN12, no one was injured as a result of the damaged plane.

Elizabeth Wolf, a spokeswoman for Delta, said she believes the plane hit a bird as the plane descended into Chicago about 12:45 a.m. No injuries were reported. The team will play the Chicago Bulls Saturday evening. The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, landed safely without incident; customers have since deplaned and maintenance is evaluating. "Safety is Delta's top priority".

The Thunder were travelling Minnesota where they narrowly lost 119-116 to the Timberwolves but apparently didn't notice anything unusual about the flight.

Steven Adams tweeted about the ordeal and asked NASA what they thought could have caused the nose of the plane to become damaged.

Carmelo Anthony posted an image of the dented plane with the caption, "What could we have possibly hit in the SKY at this time of night?"

Thunder forward Patrick Patterson took a video of the damage to the nose of the plane.
