New player rankings hit for NBA 2K22, as All-Star Weekend looms

If you’ve been enjoying the plethora of action that NBA 2K22 serves up, you’ll want to check out the latest player rankings update.

In training

Building on the year-over-year success of the series, 2K’s yearly NBA title in 2021 was already pretty terrific. Not only did the game look fantastic, but it offered a multitude of modes to play with and some excellent controls.

At the time too, it was pretty current in terms of its roster. At the time. But as any sports fan knows, as seasons flow, so do changes aplenty for every team and player. So with that in mind, 2K has released the newest Updated Player Rankings for the game.

Changes include:

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid: 96 OVR (+1) is averaging 29 points, 10.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.4 blocks per game without top teammates Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris. Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Dončić: 94 OVR (+1) has kept his team in the middle of the playoff picture, rattling off seven wins in the last 10 games. 

More major updates include Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden: 91 OVR (+1), Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: 87 OVR (+1) and the young, streaking Cleveland Cavaliers that have had five different players see their ratings increase over the past 14 days.

NBA 2K press release

The update comes as the NBA itself is heading into All-Star season, which culminates in All-Star Weekend and the actual game itself. That takes place on February 20th. Many of the players who’ll be in town for that, are stars of this new DLC.
