Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Griffin said, "I expect to be ready by training camp."
Griffin's 2016-17 season ended prematurely when he injured the big toe on his right foot in Game 3 of the Clippers' opening-round playoff series against the Utah Jazz.
The Clippers are betting big on Griffin to take over as the face of their franchise. On Wednesday, he officially signed the five-year, $173 million extension which he agreed to on July 1.
Los Angeles' roster has undergone significant changes this offseason. Most notably, the Clippers traded Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets for a package that included Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell, Darrun Hilliard, DeAndre Liggins, Lou Williams and Kyle Wiltjer. They also signed acquired Danilo Gallinari and Willie Reed over the past few weeks.
Griffin has been an electric talent in his first seven seasons with the Clippers, averaging 21.5 points and 9.4 rebounds in 471 games.
Injuries have been a lingering concern for Griffin, however. He missed the entire 2009-10 season with a broken kneecap, and he has missed 83 regular-season games over the last three years.
