According to most reports online this new update is roughly 2GB in size on PS5. Whilst this is certainly not the biggest NBA 2K update we've seen before, it's anything but small.

That being said, other reports state that PS4 and Xbox One updates are closer to 29.5 GB.

RATINGS REFRESH - The update follows on from last week's ratings update

For the time being, NBA 2K developers haven't shared any official patch notes in relation to the new update, and if the past is anything to go by, the devs won't always share details about the update in a timely fashion.

Normally, the games passionate Reddit community are all over these updates once they drop, so no doubt we'll see some initial details about what has changed in the coming hours.
