The Argentinian gave manager Roberto Mancini a scare when he limped off after 64 minutes in City's Barclays Premier League win over Fulham at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
The 28-year-old had collided with defender Brede Hangeland moments earlier and was unable to run off the knock.
City's other senior right-backs Micah Richards and Maicon are currently both out with knee problems but Zabaleta does not think he will be joining them on the sidelines.
Zabaleta told the club's website, www.mcfc.co.uk: "I took a kick on the top of my foot which caused me a lot of pain afterwards and that's the reason it was better that I came off.
"Thankfully, the scan showed there was no serious damage. I should be fine for Saturday but it will be a couple of days before it is 100% again.
"I did some bike work on Monday morning and on Tuesday I will try some running so I'm sure I will be available for the game against Stoke."
