The Cubs' flight was diverted to Albuquerque, New Mexico due to an ill family member on board, according to MLB's Jon Morosi.

The patient exited the plane to receive treatment, but the rest of the team remained aboard, CBS Chicago reports.

A Cubs spokesperson told CBS Chicago that the flight bound for Los Angeles International Airport instead landed at Albuquerque International Sunport at 4:30 a.m.

The Cubs are now waiting for a new pilot as the one who was originally flying the plane ran out of allotted hours.

The Chicago Cubs' road to Los Angeles to face the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series has not been without drama. The family member is not in a life-threatening situation. Five hours later, at 10:28 a.m. MT (12:28 a.m. ET) the flight departed Albuquerque for Los Angeles.

Game 1 of the NLCS is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday at Dodger Stadium.
