February 26th Roster Update for NBA Live 15

A new roster has come through for NBA Live 15, containing line-ups that have been updated through February 23rd, 2015. It appears as though the errors in the post-trade deadline update that came through over the weekend have been fixed, as Arron Afflalo is no longer on the Denver Nuggets’ roster, but instead on the Portland Trail Blazers’ roster as he should be. The starting line-up for the West All-Stars has also been corrected, as LaMarcus Aldridge is now starting ahead of Dirk Nowitzki.

However, as the February 26th update’s rosters are only accurate as of the 23rd, a couple of more recent transactions aren’t accounted for, including the Cleveland Cavaliers’ signing of Kendrick Perkins, Thomas Robinson being waived by the Nuggets and subsequently picked up by the Philadelphia 76ers, and a few 10 day contract signings.

The latest roster features over 700 ratings changes for 442 players. Check out this spreadsheet for a full breakdown of the changes in the new roster, and feel free to post any feedback here in the NBA Live 15 section of the Forum.

Trade Deadline Roster Update for NBA Live 15

For those who may have missed it, a post-trade deadline roster update for NBA Live 15 came through over the weekend. It accounts for several of the moves that went down at the deadline as you’ll see Kevin Garnett on the Minnesota Timberwolves and Michael Carter-Williams on the Milwaukee Bucks, but Arron Afflalo is notably still on the Denver Nuggets’ roster. Brandon Jennings is also starting for the Detroit Pistons, despite being ruled out for the season following his Achilles injury.

Additionally, Dirk Nowitzki is still starting for the West All-Stars, whereas LaMarcus Aldridge ultimately received the starting nod after Anthony Davis’ shoulder injury made him a late scratch from the game. Hopefully, those errors will be corrected ASAP.

As always, if you have any feedback on the rosters, including misplaced players, incorrect jersey numbers, or ratings suggestions, feel free to post them in this thread in the NBA Live 15 section of the NLSC Forum.

Chinese New Year Content in NBA Live 15

As you may be aware, the NBA is celebrating Chinese New Year, and NBA Live 15 is following suit. The Chinese New Year alternates for the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors are now available in random packs in Ultimate Team. Both jerseys are also available in all other game modes.

Additionally, new Solo Challenges have been added, and new cards featuring players who were born in the Year of the Goat are also now available in packs, for a limited time.

New Pre-Trade Deadline Roster Update for NBA Live 15

A new roster update for NBA Live 15 has been pushed through, accurate as of just before this year’s trade deadline. As such, it doesn’t include any of the deals that have gone down today, but at a glance, it appears as though several player ratings have been updated.

Notably, Slam Dunk Champion Zach LaVine and Three-Point Shootout Champion Stephen Curry have received minor boosts to their Dunk and Three-Point ratings respectively, an increase of 73 to 77 for LaVine, and small jump of 92 to 93 for Curry. Both players currently have All-Star edition cards in Ultimate Team, which boost those ratings to 98.

It also seems that the starting line-up for the West All-Stars hasn’t been updated as yet, as Dirk Nowitzki is still starting ahead of LaMarcus Aldridge, who ultimately got the nod after Anthony Davis was ruled out due to injury. With the trade deadline done and dusted, I expect that another roster will be on the way very soon with all of the new transactions, as well as updated line-ups and ratings.

Latest Legends, All-Star Cards in NBA Live 15 Ultimate Team

Spud Webb and Yao Ming are the next two Legends who will be available in NBA Live 15 Ultimate Team. They’ll be randomly available in packs beginning this weekend, and can currently be faced in a Fantasy Challenge.

YAO MING, HOUSTON ROCKETS C
At 7’6, Yao was one of the most physically imposing and skilled centers in NBA history. He made eight All-Star Games despite having his career cut short by a number of injuries.

SPUD WEBB, ATLANTA HAWKS G
Despite standing just 5’7, Webb won the 1986 Slam Dunk Contest and averaged nearly 10 PPG across 12 seasons and five different teams.

Speaking of new Ultimate Team content, a few 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend player cards are now available. All-Star MVP Russell Westbrook’s card features boosted ratings across the board, Slam Dunk Contest Champion Zach LaVine’s card boosts his Dunk rating to 98 (currently 73 in the regular rosters!), and Three-Point Shootout Champion Stephen Curry has a three-point rating of 98 (compared to 92 in the regular roster). You can check out some screenshots of the All-Star cards below.
