The Black Caps veteran has suffered a grade one strain in his left calf but still looks set to take part in New Zealand’s tour of England.
Taylor suffered the injury on day one of New Zealand’s training camp in Lincoln, with an MRI confirming the prognosis.
The 37-year-old will remain with the group as he rehabilitates the injury with the aim of returning to batting and running next week, before flying to England.
The Black Caps’ greatest ever Test run-scorer, with 7379 at an average of 45.83, Taylor shapes as a key man for New Zealand in England.
Kane Williamson’s team is pencilled in to play two Tests against England, starting 2 June and 10 June respectively, before facing India in the ICC World Test Championship Final in Southampton, commencing 18 June.
New Zealand are currently in the first of two three-day training camps.
