Talen Horton-Tucker and Dwight Howard cleared health and safety protocols and will be available Tuesday night when they host the Phoenix Suns.

That leaves four Lakers in the COVID-19 protocols: Kent Bazemore, Avery Bradley, Malik Monk and Austin Reaves. Anthony Davis (knee) and Kendrick Nunn (knee) are injured.

Horton-Tucker, 21, is averaging 11.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 15 games (12 starts) this season.

Howard, 36, is contributing five points and 5.4 rebounds per game in 25 contests (three starts) in 2021-22.

Both last played Dec. 12 in the Lakers’ win over the Orlando Magic.
