Morant missed Game 2 of the series on Wednesday with a sore right hand, an injury he picked up in a fall during Game 1. He landed on his wrist after attempting to dunk over Anthony Davis of the Lakers on a drive to the basket.
He was a full participant in practice on Friday and was able to dribble and shoot during non-contact scrimmages and individual workouts.
The Grizzlies and the Lakers are tied 1-1 in their first-round playoff series.
