The French marksman suffered an ankle ligament injury during the win at Leicester City after a rash challenge by Muzzy Izzet.
Kanoute had been in fine form before the injury, notching six goals in six games for Spurs and his injury was a big loss.
The former West Ham man now says that he is close to returning to the first team to give David Pleat's side a welcome boost.
"Things are not too bad, I started running a few days ago and I am looking to accelerate now," said Kanoute.
"I have to be careful not to rush it because that could set me back. I have to take my time but I don't think I am too far away.
"It is frustrating because you have to start again, get the fitness back and I hope I have not lost too much there.
"I will need training and a few games before I am back at the level I was at again but I am confident."
