Skipper Warburton was unable to lead out the side in the 59-8 victory over the Barbarians at the weekend due to a knee injury and will not feature in Wednesday's fixture against Western Force.
However the Wales flanker has now been able to take part in running drills on the squad's arrival in Australia and, along with fit-again prop Gethin Jenkins, could make his comeback against the Reds on Saturday.
"Sam will train fully tomorrow," assistant coach Rowntree revealed.
"He didn't quite do everything today - he did some extended running drills and will be fine for tomorrow."
The Lions will be looking to lay down a marker when they play for the first time Down Under against the Force, with plenty of players keen to impress head coach Warren Gatland in the battle to claim places in the Test team.
"I thought we set the bar fairly high on Saturday in difficult conditions," Rowntree said.
"A lot of our proven guys that have played a lot of games found those conditions harder than anything, harder than altitude or anything like that.
"In difficult conditions and our first hit-out together, the guys set a high standard, and tomorrow's crew have got to move that bar up again.
"We've said to the guys the first three games everyone gets a start, so after the (Queensland) Reds game (on Saturday) I think we have got to start making some decisions on combinations and having a look at people.
"And certainly by the Waratahs and ACT (Brumbies) games, we need to know who we are going to start with in the (first) Test, but at this point in time there is everything there to play for for everyone."
