NBA 2K15 Roster Update Details (10-29-14)

Hey everybody!

I wanted to share with you some info on roster updates in NBA 2K15. With the NBA season officially underway, the NBA 2K15 roster will be updated as frequently as possible to reflect what you see in the NBA on a nightly basis.

Since the launch of the game on October 7th, NBA 2K15 has seen roster updates every day during the week. Many of you probably have not noticed, as this year the roster is downloaded for you automatically.

Here are a few of the many changes that you might of missed over the past few weeks (unless you were paying very close attention):

Player Movement/Additions

All team rosters are 100% accurate based on opening day. Every player who made the team, is on their respective team. Some examples of players added include:

  • JaKarr Sampson- PHI
  • K.J. McDaniels- PHI
  • Dwight Powell- BOS
  • Alex Kirk- CLE
  • Damien Inglis- MIL
  • Jarnell Stokes- MEM
  • Andre Dawkins- MIA
  • Eric Moreland- SAC
  • Travis Wear- NY
  • Jordan Clarkson- LAL
  • Devyn Marble- ORL
  • Cory Jefferson- BKN
  • Patric Young- NOP
  • Tarik Black- HOU
  • Clint Capela- HOU
  • Glenn Robinson III- MIN
  • Zoran Dragic- PHX
  • Joe Inglis- UTA
  • Kostas Papanikolaou- HOU

Accessory and Team Color updates

All accessories have been updated on a daily basis to represent the latest trends from their recent games. As we get into future updates I will list specific accessory changes made day to day, but to list all of the changes over the past few weeks would hurt your eyes to read, and my fingers to type :)

Head bands added for:

  • Isaiah Thomas
  • Brandon Davies
  • Jerryd Bayless
  • Sebastian Telfair
  • Will Barton
  • Drew Gooden III

Head bands removed from:

  • Damian Lillard
  • Anthony Morrow

Updated the accessory and headband colors for every team to match the most commonly used color combo for their different jerseys. Updated some of the teams shoe colors for different jerseys. Some of the examples include:

  • Lakers home are sleeves are now White
  • Pistons Blue sleeve is now more vibrant
  • Wizards will now wear Red Sleeves at home and Navy on the road.
  • Nuggets now wearing black leg accessories at home and on the road. Away uniforms wear white socks
  • Mavs now wearing black socks on the road
  • Home alternate uniforms for the Cavs, Pacers, Thunder, Knicks are now using white socks/shoes and home accessory colors
  • Grizzlies away sleeves now navy blue. Alternate Light blue
  • Updated accessory colors for some of the classic teams, including the Showtime Lakers to blue

Shoe changes

Many players have had their shoe brand/model change since last season. The shoes that players wore in the preseason were reflected in roster updates over the past few weeks. Some examples of those changes include the following:

  • LaMarcus Aldridge- Jordan
  • Nerlens Noel- UnderArmour
  • Jimmy Butler- Jordan
  • Wesley Johnson- Nike
  • Kyle Singler- Peak
  • Mario Chalmers- Nike
  • DeMarcus Cousins- Nike
  • DeMar Derozan- Nike
  • Shannon Brown- Jordan
  • Shawne Williams- Jordan
  • Kirk Hinrich- Adidas
  • Will Bynum- Peak
  • PJ Hairston- Under Armour
  • Enes Kanter- Under Armour
  • Courtney Lee- Nike
  • Damian Inglis- Nike
  • Jorge Gutierrez- Nike
  • Markel Brown- Nike
  • Donald Sloan- Nike
  • Damjan Rudez- Nike
  • Zoran Dragic- Nike
  • Grant Jerrett- Nike
  • Bruno Cabaclo- Nike

Tendency/Attribute changes

Due to the fact that it was the preseason, there were very limited tendency and attribute changes. The changes made were those to players that changed up their play style. An example of that is Enes Kanter, who attempted many more 3pt’s than he has in his entire career. He saw an increase in his 3pt tendency.

All of these changes were made prior to injuries being implemented in the “Official 2K Sports Roster” and can be found in the “Injury-Free Roster”. If you are interested in playing Quick Game without injuries, a new option has been added where you can download the “Injury-Free Roster”. In order to access that roster go to Options - Create Roster - Select “Injury-Free Roster” and save that roster locally.

In the update that came out this morning injuries and rotations were updated to reflect the start of the season:

Jersey # changes

  • Joe Inglis #2

Players out with Injuries

  • Jerami Grant
  • Joel Embiid
  • Michael Carter-Williams
  • Jason Richardson
  • Damien Inglis
  • Johnny O’Bryant
  • Vitor Faverani
  • Josh McRoberts
  • Andrea Bargnani
  • Ryan Kelly
  • Wayne Ellington
  • Steve Nash
  • Nick Young
  • Channing Frye
  • Victor Oladipo
  • Raymond Felton
  • C.J. Watson
  • Paul George
  • George Hill
  • David West
  • Jodie Meeks
  • Kawhi Leonard
  • Tiago Splitter
  • Patty Mills
  • Jeremy Lamb
  • Kevin Durant
  • Reggie Jackson
  • Anthony Morrow
  • Mitch McGary
  • Bradley Beal

Starting lineups are as accurate as possible with the given projected depth charts. As more NBA games are played look for team’s rotations to be updated on a frequent basis

For those of you looking to create your own roster or edit the current one, the “Create Roster” feature has been updated to now allow you to click “The Official 2K Sports Roster” and you will receive the latest file.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about some of the many changes that have been updated over the past few weeks. With each roster update I will include detailed notes as to what has changed from one update to the next. Please leave any feedback in regards to inaccuracies found in the update request thread that Steve created. I monitor that the thread frequently and a great a lot of the changes seen in the updates have come as a direct result of your amazing feedback.

Alright, now get out of here and go play some 2K!

# 3 seanbarkley @ 10/29/14 06:46 PM
Simply awesome how threads full of complaints have turned into praises in one year just because of one guy
# 4 extremeskins04 @ 10/29/14 06:51 PM
Wow nice roster update!
# 5 DENCIO @ 10/29/14 06:51 PM
Thank you mike. You deserve to be part of the 2k team
# 6 RyanJS08 @ 10/29/14 06:51 PM
Hopefully this is a precursor of more detailed updates to come, I think I speak for all of us when I say THANK YOU! Look forward to more updates like these.
# 7 RyanJS08 @ 10/29/14 06:55 PM
I also noticed from the roster I downloaded a couple days ago, the Kings away Jerseys had white accessories (DC had a white headband, white socks) but had away colored shoes. Has that been changed? Or is that how it should be? Just wondering.
# 8 Turbojugend @ 10/29/14 07:12 PM
Yeah, this is awesome. Thanks much!
# 9 The 24th Letter @ 10/29/14 07:21 PM
FANTASTIC job Mike...actual daily updates...been a long time coming!

I'm very excited to start seeing tendency changes...it's what keeps the game fresh...
# 10 tha_show256 @ 10/29/14 07:22 PM
Hmm, I'm wondering if I have the latest update as Steve Nash and Swaggy P (Nick Young) are still in the Lakers active roster on mine??
# 11 Zboogie @ 10/29/14 07:44 PM
I am guessing Damian Lillard Crazy Light Boost are still not low tops yet am I right?
# 12 tha_show256 @ 10/29/14 07:49 PM

No truer words have been spoken. The game is a beast. No more ham and egging to win games and it just keeps getting better. Thanks for your support Mike!

This is very refreshing to have this amount of detail in the roster updates considering how inconsistent they were in the past with 2K. Daily updates are long overdue & much appreciated. The only gripe I have is some players height are wrong & haven't been fixed for years. The two that come to mind are Kevin Durant & Paul Gasol. Durant is at the very least 6'10 arguably 6'11 & Gasol is a legit 7'1. Also some player models are off (Jamaal Crawford is the most glaring & needs his face scanned). Hopefully player models can be updated. Also some players arms are too skinny (Ibaka, Harden, Lowry, Isaiah Thomas with the Suns, etc..)
# 15 Shadymamba @ 10/29/14 08:24 PM
Thank you very much for the update!!
# 16 thedream2k13 @ 10/29/14 08:44 PM
Can Terrance jones of the rockets get a new shot release form? Its 100% wrong in 2k14 and 15
# 17 Junior Moe @ 10/29/14 08:55 PM
Will there be an update to the Euroleague team rosters? I'm not expecting any updates like you're doing with the NBA rosters or anything, but I at least thought that the rosters would be accurate for the beginning of the Euro season. They are way out of whack right now.
# 18 xSubzer0x @ 10/29/14 09:19 PM
So basically use this roster for my MyGm mode since it's basically the opening day roster ??
# 19 nico30 @ 10/29/14 09:36 PM
when will it release?
# 20 reptilexcq @ 10/29/14 09:42 PM
This is BS. Durant is out and i can't use him to play online rank. So if he's out for the entire year..you mean i have to wait until 2k16 to play him?? This is nonsense and stupid.
