“I am almost back to full 100 per cent sprinting in a straight line,” he said while commentating on Australia’s first Twenty20 against New Zealand on Monday.
“This next week is getting back to fielding, picking up, throwing — very difficult that was, last couple of weeks, even trying to throw.
“Now it’s all about lateral (movement), running between wickets, building that up.
“It’s just the tendon that has got that slight tear in it now.
Warner, who was scheduled to captain Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League in April, was selected for Australia’s Test tour of South Africa, but that was aborted because of health concerns.
He said he had spoken with other athletes who had suffered similar injuries.
“They have just said it’s a niggle,” Warner added.
“It’s just getting back that confidence to sidestep and run as hard as I can and dive around again. Once I get that, I will be right to go. It’s just not 100 per cent there yet.”
