Warner will miss Wednesday’s final ODI and all three Twenty20 internationals beginning Friday in Canberra.
Opening batsman D’Arcy Short has been called up to the Twenty20 international squad as a replacement.
Cricket Australia also announced that leading pace bowler Pat Cummins will be rested for the remainder of the white-ball matches against India, putting pressure on an out-of-form Mitchell Starc.
No replacement has been announced for Cummins, with Australia to rely on Josh Hazelwood, Starc and all-rounder Marcus Stoinis to provide the main seam bowling options.
Australia will play four Tests against India, with the other matches in Melbourne beginning on Boxing Day, Sydney (January 7-11) and Brisbane (January 15-19).
