Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe have been filling in the striking needs of the side from White Hart Lane this season, leaving no space for the Togo international to make an appearance.
Manager Villas-Boas has said that the striker must be patient and work hard if he wants to dislodge the current regular strikers from their positions.
The Portugese boss has made no plans to shuffle his frontline even in the face of the goalless draw they endured at Everton recently.
"Obviously every player counts for us," said Villas-Boas after the Goodison Park stalemate.
"We have Defoe on eight goals, Soldado on six. Sometimes we start with a 4-4-2, then that can change to a 4-2-3-1 with one striker up front, so there is competition for places and you have to try and break your way into the team.
"No matter how hard you try the others are trying just as hard as you. So you have to be patient and wait for your opportunity whenever it arises. I think that is the nature of any top club in the country.
"You look at [Manchester] City who have four strikers. Two of them play, two of them sit [on the bench]. It's no different for us, you have to wait for the opportunity."
Adebayor, who was previously on loan to Spurs in 2011, finally inked a permanent deal with the club in August 2012.
