Shia Islam is silent on following two persons, their statuses are ambiguous. Thus, high level Shia opinion is silent on their statuses. God knows best in their regards, one can't make a complete negative opinion for the following two persons:

1) Zubair son of Awwam

Fought with Imam Ali, but showed remorse right amidst battle, left the battle, but was killed by his former ally Talha s/o Obaidullah. God knows best in regards to Zubair, Shia Islam is thus silent on his status.

2) Sa'ad son of Abu Waqqas

Didn't paid allegiance to Imam Ali as 4th Caliph, but openly rejected Mauwiya's proposal with regards to cursing Imam Ali, and waging war on him. Neither favoured nor opposed Imam Ali, but remained isolated. God knows best in regards to Sa'ad, Shia Islam is thus silent on his status.
