Taylor missed the second match of the series as the Caribbean side completed a 2-0 win on Sunday at the same venue.
The 28-year-old has suffered a grade two AC displacement in his left shoulder, and has revealed that he might have to return home.
"Depending on the severity of the injury, [I'll miss] anywhere between two and six weeks but hopefully I'll be going for the closer time. I haven't given myself a timeframe, hopefully no longer than the Test matches.
"We'll have a better assessment in the next week or so, then I'll have a better idea of where I'm at. If I'm looking positive then I'll stay on, if not then I'll obviously come home," Taylor said.
The Kiwi selectors feel their side have ample batting resources, and have selected Northern Districts’ pacer Trent Boult for the Caribbean tour, nzherald reported.
The New Zealand captain has had a poor past in terms of injuries as he was out of action for four weeks in January after straining his calf during a Test match against Zimbabwe, after which he suffered a broken arm in the third Test against South Africa in March, which also ruled him out from the Indian Premier League.
"It's been a frustrating six months for me, to be honest," he said. "I haven't spent a lot of time on the paddock and missed a lot more cricket than I would have liked."
