A new roster update for NBA 2K13 arrived today but includes no ratings changes to any players. The trade between the Cavaliers (receiving Marreese Speights, Josh Selby, and Wayne Ellington) and Grizzlies (Jon Leuer) has been reflected. Chris ‘Birdman’ Andersen has also been added to the Heat roster. Alvin Gentry remains on the sideline as coach of the Suns with the switch to Lindsey Hunter having not yet been completed.

Injury Status Changes: Anderson Varejao (-19 to 57), Lou Williams (-24 to 54), Raymond Felton (returns at 79), Hedo Turkoglu (-3 to 69), Manu Ginobili (returns to 86), Nikola Pekovic (-19 to 57), Alexey Shved (-8 to 63), Meyers Leonard (returns to 59), Cartier Martin (-9 to 58)

Also of note is that the “Acrobat” signature skill has been stripped from players because of an ongoing online gaming tournament. Though an unexpected development given that the sig skills have been part of the game from day one and worked to better define player abilities doing so may be related to a prominent exploit that has plagued the online experience. The Euro Step three pointers should have been addressed by now – and certainly will disrupt that tournament – but disabling the “Acrobat” skill was likely done to reduce the effectiveness of that.

    Ronnie2k on Twitter says “Roster Update went live last night, includes Memphis-Cleveland trade along with several ratings adjustments”. His definition of several ratings adjustments is when there are none. Explains a lot about how shit the roster updates have been for 2K13.

      i think he meant the injured players got decreased lmao!

  • Fuck you 2k

    Typical lazy 2K. Something is broken? Lets take something out the game to fix it. Yeah that’s it

  • Irssh

    So they admit that the eurostep 3 problem is big enough that they try to do something for it with this Virgin tournament. But the rest of the time oh well they dont care??? Weak.

    Maybe it’s just me as a Nets fan, but Lopez has a solid chance to be named to the All-Star team tonight, and in the last roster update with actual ratings changes he was dropped from an 80 to a 79! How is that possible 2K??

    STAY AWAY from the Wii U version. Its a scam. No support or roster updates. Also missing alot of featurs that the 360/ps3 get. Just removed from the game or dont work

    and whats up with D-Wade, LBJ, and Griffin being able to dunk on the whole team if all 5 players are under the rim? the only person i can see doing that on a consistent basis is Griffin but im not talking about 5 players, maybe 2

    Keith, where u at? Surprised you’re not here defending the euro step 3 pointers and saying how realistic they are. Bet u can hit those in real life with your eyes closd while reading ea sports quarterly financial statement.

    Mickael Gelabale is averaging around 6 points during the past 4 games on the MInnesota Timeberwolves…Why has he not been included on this game?
    There have been at least 2 Official Roster Updates since he signed with the team…C’mon 2K, keep up…Smh

    I was starting to get annoyed with Madden’s weekly roster updates until I started playing this game. No updating happens at all. They don’t do anything but troll people who like to play online by making injured players unusable. Smh there are so many players that need adjustments.

    I just desperately want Shumpert to look at least close to as good as the Cyberface mod that PC users have made. and the addition of the Flat Top to Shump would be really freakin nice too. i play the “create a legend” wit Shump and the sh!t is freakin depressing
