NBA 2K18 is set to release next month on Sept. 19, and it looks amazing. The graphics are unreal, and the new features will make you feel like a real-life NBA general manager. It’s time to start planning how you’re going to beat all of your friends in the new game.

Everyone knows how good the superstars in the game will be. Steph Curry will hit threes from wherever, Kyrie Irving will blow by anyone, and LeBron James will dunk on anyone. Those are obvious. But when playing in 2K leagues and fantasy drafting for GM mode, you need to draft a bench.

We’re here to help you find some of the game’s underrated players who you haven’t used before. Take note of them when the new game comes out.

Elite Womens Kyle Juszczyk Jersey One big reason for Minnesota struggling is the absence of Lindsay Whalen, their starting point guard who underwent hand surgery at the start of the month. She’s still out indefinitely, and while she’s only the Lynx’s fifth-leading scorer, her steady hand on the offense is missed. Whalen averages 4.1 assists per game, best on the team.

The Lynx will hopefully see Whalen return before the playoffs begin in early September. Minnesota is good enough that they might be OK without her, but the last week hasn’t been a good indication for that being true.

In a showdown with the Lynx, the Sparks — second-best team in the WNBA — won soundly. Their 80-74 victory on Friday was spurred by Chelsea Gray’s 23 points and Maya Moore recording a 19-point, 10-rebound double-double.
