Some players got their overall ratings updated as the real-life National Basketball Association completes its first two weeks of season 2019-20.
Several basketball stars got their “NBA 2K20” stats higher than they were last September. However, some players have also seen their ratings go down by some points.

The “NBA 2K20” ratings are not exactly a mirror of the players’ actual stats in the real-life league. But it is obvious that, for some players, their actual performance in the NBA affects their standing in the video game franchise.
Forbes report, for example, that Ingram’s “NBA 2K20” badges are now up to 14 badges, which is 10 more than what he had when the game launched. The same report pointed out that Ingram’s better stats in the video game is a translation of him having a great start in the NBA season 2019-20 with the absence of Zion Williamson. Pelicans’ no. 1 draft pick has yet to play a game in the professional league as he recovers from a torn right lateral meniscus.
