NBA 2K20 ratings update #5: Zion Williamson, Damian Lillard biggest movers

Ahead of the 2020 NBA All-Star break, 2K has released a new roster update for NBA 2K20. Here are some of the new overall ratings as of February 13.

It’s hard to believe that we’re already more than halfway through the 2019–20 NBA season. This season has been full of surprises, from the emergence of Luka Doncic to the exciting play of Ja Morant to the overachieving Miami Heat. The landscape around the NBA has changed quite a bit, especially after the trade deadline, and 2K has done a good job keeping up with it all in NBA 2K20 thanks to regularly occurring roster updates.

With the season about to take a rest with the All-Star break this weekend, it’s a perfect time for 2K to release a roster update. Unlike last week’s update, which adjusted the rosters according to the trade deadline deals, today’s update is focused on adjusting player overall ratings based on their real-life performance.

One of the biggest winners in this update is Zion Williamson. The No. 1-overall pick has played in only nine games for the New Orleans Pelicans, having returned from injury in late January, and he’s already made his presence felt on the court. In nine games thus far, Williamson is averaging 21 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. As a result, he’s seen his NBA 2K20 rating bumped up two points to an 84 overall.

Another big mover in today’s update is Damian Lillard. The Trail Blazers superstar will, unfortunately, miss the All-Star break festivities due to injury, but he’s been on an absolute tear this season. He’s averaging 29.5 points (4th-most in the NBA) and 7.9 assists (6th-most in NBA) per game. His stellar play on the court is reflected with a two-point rating increase in NBA 2K20, bringing him to a 94 overall.

Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers), Paul George (L.A. Clippers) and Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves) each saw a one-point decrease to their overall. They are each rated 90 overall now.

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic actually got a one-point boost, bringing him up to a 91 overall. This technically makes him tied for the 10th-best rating in NBA 2K20 alongside Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving.

Here are some of the noteworthy adjustments as of the NBA 2K20 ratings update #5 (February 13, 2020):

  • Damian Lillard: 94 OVR (+2)
