Jimmy Butler says he doesn’t regret the comments he made Saturday after the Chicago Bulls loss to the New York Knicks in which he said Fred Hoiberg had to coach the team “a lot harder.”

“Do I regret it? No.” Butler said after Monday’s shootaround. “[I was] a little frustrated after a loss, yeah, but then again, I put a lot of it on myself now because I gotta lead better, can’t allow stuff to happen. Yeah, we lost one I didn’t want to lose at home against Detroit and the way that we lost against New York. You got raw emotion right then and there [after the Knicks game].”

Sources: Kyrie Irving Could Miss a ‘few more’ Weeks with Shoulder Injury

The Nets have been about as transparent as a brick wall when it comes to Kyrie Irving’s shoulder injury. But the star’s absence is approaching three weeks, and multiple sources told The Post he could need a few more — if he’s lucky.

Irving missed his 10th straight game Wednesday with what the Nets termed a shoulder impingement. He also has already been ruled out for Friday night’s game in Charlotte.

Two specialists told The Post that Irving is likely to be out a few more weeks. One medical source not affiliated with the team intimated there’s more under the surface and that this injury could be even more long term.

If David Fizdale is going to be made the scapegoat by Knicks president Steve Mills for his hodgepodge roster, it’s going to take a little while longer.

According to an NBA source, Monday’s 44-point blowout loss in Milwaukee did not put the Knicks coach in any immediate danger, as bad as the optics were. Fizdale, though, must still show a modicum of progress as the winter deepens.

The Knicks host Denver on Thursday and Indiana on Saturday before a grueling four-game western trip that begins with Carmelo Anthony’s Blazers in Portland.
