(KGTV) - Photos of a caved-in nose of an aircraft carrying the Oklahoma City Thunder from Minneapolis made rounds on social media Saturday.

The Delta flight touched down in Chicago Saturday around 12:45 a.m. CT with a massive dent in the nose of the aircraft, social media photos from Thunder players shortly after landing showed.

Carmelo Anthony posted a photo of the damage on Instagram saying, "What possibly could we have hit in the SKY at this time of night? Everyone is Safe, Though."

Steven Adams tweeted a photo asking NASA, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and scientist Bill Nye what happened:

Josh Huestis posted a photo also: "I guess we hit something?"

No injuries were reported and the flight did not appear impacted other than the damage to the aircraft.

A spokesperson for Delta Airlines told The Oklahoman newspaper it's likely the plane collided with a bird while descending into Chicago, but landed safely without incident.

The Thunder will play the Chicago Bulls Saturday night.
