NBA 2K13 Week 14 Roster Update Details

Posted January 30th, 2013 at 10:45 am


A new roster update for NBA 2K13 arrived this morning on the Xbox 360 and PS3. The update ends the span of a few weeks where no ratings changes had been made. Though there are only a handful at least the Lakers take a long overdue hit as Dwight Howard and Steve Nash fall.

The update also affects the injury status of a number of players including Rajon Rondo who is done for the year and Chris Paul who will have missed five straight games after tonight with no clear expectation for when he will return. Alvin Gentry remains on the sidelines for the Phoenix Suns despite being replaced nearly two weeks ago by Lindsey Hunter. The All-Star reserves have also been set after establishing the starters in a prior update.

Ratings Up: Jrue Holiday (+1 to 88), Kyrie Irving (+3 to 88), Alan Anderson (+4 to 70), Terrence Ross (+1 to 71), Tiago Splitter (+6 to 70)

Ratings Down: Dwight Howard (-3 to 89), Steve Nash (-2 to 83), Jerry Stackhouse (-2 to 67)

Injury Status: Daniel Gibson (-5 to 60), Rajon Rondo (-33 to 56), Chris Paul (-12 to 82), Steve Blake (returns to 68), Royce White (returns to 68), Andrew Bogut (returns to 79)

    pasta why wont xbox live let me sign in? anyone else having this problem?

  • Did they add Chris Johnson to the grizzlies?

    • Wematanye

      What about the other Chris Johnson on the T- Wolves

      • 49ersfan1

        or the chris johnson on the Titans….

    • Rob

      Or Chris Johnson to the Wolves?

  • Keith.

    Pasta, you’re not going to ignore the latest news in the O’Bannon case are you?

    • Nothing really to discuss right now since it’s advancing as expected. As has been for a while the next big step relates to the class action certification and the hearings on that aren’t scheduled until June.

      • Keith.

        “[T]he [Judge’s January 29th] decision staves off the NCAA’s attempt to end the case now after filing a 33-page motion last October to strike the certification motion,” and “[n]ow the (NCAA and its co-defendants) are facing potential liability in the billions of dollars instead of tens or hundreds of millions,” said Michael Hausfeld, interim lead counsel for the plaintiffs.

        Sorry to take the thread off topic, but I’d say that’s pretty big news for those of us who are interested in how this thing’s going to turn out.

        • Amen_Ra

          Let that wack isht go Keith.

    • 49ersfan1

      no one cares man.

      • Keith.

        You should. Or don’t you play football videogames?

        • 49ersfan1

          what football video games? you call madden and ncaa a football game? or a monopoly scam?

          • Keith.

            Fair enough, man.


    How do you dock dwigh 3 points when he doesn’t get the ball enough to show his skill ? Not even a lakers fan but thats crazy.

    • novve

      Sounds like a typical Lakers fan here lol.

      • YO MTV RAPS

        Knicks Fan…. and I have my beefs with 2K….. but that though goes for all teams, His name was just in the “Ratings Down” section at the top and I used him as an example.

    • 49ersfan1

      howard yesterday vs the Hornets: 24 pts, 5 stls, 4 blks. yeah i dont see the decrease. ever since kobe has been passing for 10+ asts, howard has made improvements even with the shoulder injury. maybe they just docked down his free throws to 20 ovr so he took the -3

    • stwelch20

      That whole team is stealing money. I’m guessing you want Kobe’s pass rating to be 85 now just because he had a few good games distributing the ball?

  • Jnes

    Hate how they disrespected Brook Lopez by lowering him and havent fixed him since.

  • Wematanye

    Why wont they decrease Corey Maggette & Wes Johnson?

    • TheSpartanZombie

      Or Rodney Stuckey??

      • Wematanye

        hes needs to go down 2 points but Maggette & Wes Johnson need to be in the 60s

  • 49ersfan1

    i thought rondo tore his ACL not lost his arm…

    • stwelch20

      They did the same thing to Rose. It’s a little to much realism in my opinion. I want to play with any injured player online like in Madden

  • stwelch20

    No bump for Jimmy Butler? Dude is playing like a beast on both sides of the ball. His Def. Awr. rating being in the 60’s is an atrocity. His rebounding needs to go up too. Raising 2 already awesome player’s rating’s won’t make them much better. Reward the young players that are outplaying these bogus ratings. 2k is making EA look awesome right now.

  • Mike Woodson

    It frustrates me when Tyson Chandler never gets any love in 2k …

  • Matt Barnthouse

    It frustrates me to see that NBA 2K has still failed to put in Pacers backup PG Ben Hansbrough.

  • JacksonHart

    I don’t understand how James Harden is only an 86. You telling me Jrue Holiday and Kyrie Irving are better than him? Those are great players, but Harden is in the dark horse MVP race…c’mon now

    • mvp? you dont win mvp when your team is 2 games above .500

  • Would have been helpful before I created a PG a month ago that got drafted to the Celtics to be the Star SG. I could have had Rondo’s injury in MyCAREER and then been the star PG although playing alongside Rondo is awesome. But because I’m technically a PG that’s just playing SG all the fans on Twitter get mad at me for not passing or rebounding because I’m not doing my PG duties that I would had I replaced Rondo.

    • Wematanye

      So you wanted Rondo to get hurt a month earlier for your MyCareer… Really?

  • g

    Wats Carmelo’s overall rating
