DALLAS — The Lakers experienced mixed progress pertaining to the health of two key frontcourt players.

Lakers reserve forward Larry Nance Jr. said he received clearance to play when the Lakers (19-44) play against the Dallas Mavericks (26-36) tonight at American Airlines Center. But the Lakers listed reserve center Ivica Zubac as questionable after nursing a right quad contusion in recent days.

After completing all of Monday’s practice and Tuesday’s morning shootaround, Nance will not need to wear any wrapping around his right wrist. Meanwhile, Zubac missed Monday’s practice and only completed part of Tuesday’s morning shootaround.

“Didn’t look great,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said about Zubac. “We’ll see.”

While Nance has averaged 6.6 points on 55.3 percent rebounding and 5.5 rebounds, Zubac has averaged 5.9 points on 49.6 percent shooting and 3.8 rebounds. Zubac also missed Sunday’s loss to New Orleans, which opened up playing time for starting center Tarik Black and Timofey Mozgov, who had fallen out of the rotation so Walton could allocate more minutes to his younger players for development purposes.
