Plane With Heat Players Makes Emergency Landing in Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) -- A plane carrying Miami Heat basketball players had to make an emergency landing in Chicago after a mechanic on board became ill.

Team spokesman Tim Donovan said the plane safely landed early Sunday at O'Hare International Airport after the mechanic went into a diabetic coma. Donovan says the teams' trainers treated the mechanic while the plane was in the air and he was taken to a hospital in Chicago after the landing.

Donovan says the mechanic is doing better now.

The team was returning to Miami after beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 97-84 on Saturday night.
