Delta: Bird likely caused damage to plane carrying Thunder

UPDATE: Delta addresses Thunder plane damage en route to Chicago

Wolf, in an email, said no one was hurt and the plane landed without incident.

Carmelo Anthony was similarly concerned, posting the same image of the plane's badly dented nose. Oklahoma City plays the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.

"We had a rough flight to say the least". "30,000 feet in the air".

Steven Adams posted a photo on Twitter asking NASA, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and science educator Bill Nye (who was a former mechanical engineer for Boeing) for help figuring out what happened to the plane.

But the Internet got there first (of course), with suggestions of everything from Thor's hammer to aliens to a thunderstorm (geddit?).

If you do an internet search for this type of crash, you'll find they're not uncommon because the nose of the plane is constructed from softer materials than the rest of the plane.

Man United get Jones boost ahead of Tottenham clash
However, Mourinho has confirmed the defender is in contention to face Spurs at Old Trafford this weekend. Lingard was in good form Tuesday night as his goals helped United to a win.

The official Oaklahoma City Thunder website has no reference to the incident.

The plane touched down safely and on schedule around 1 a.m. local time, albeit not totally intact, following the Thunder's 116-119 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday night in Minneapolis.

On Saturday a spokesperson for the Thunder told The Oklahoman that all players, staff and coaches were just fine upon their arrival in Chicago.

Another fan expressed relief to hear that the plane had landed safely and the players are okay.

Patrick Patterson said the Thunder hit Superman.
