The Czech Republic international, who committed his future to the Principality club last month, fractured a bone in his left foot at the end of last season.
The 23-year-old was forced to return to Monaco during the holidays to have the injury examined which needs two more weeks to heal.
Plasil was suffering from abdominal muscle problems last summer and the 23-year-old is desperate to start the new campaign fully fit this time around.
"It makes me angry because it's the same situation I was in last summer," said Plasil to CTK.
"I can only ride a bike, swim or do stretching. I can forget kicking a ball in the next few days.
"I didn't really enjoy the holidays because I had to go back to Monaco to see the doctor."
