The Frenchman will miss all the preparation tournaments for Roland Garros, which begins on May 24, as he is suffering from tendonitis in both knees.
Monfils, a semi-finalist at his home grand slam in 2008, should be fit for this year’s event but his lack of practice on clay will not help his bid for the title.
The world number 10 was knocked out of the Monte Carlo Masters in the first round by Janko Tipsarevic in straight sets earlier this week.
