In basketball, a timeout is one minute. There's two types of timeouts: you have one minute, timeout and a twenty second time out. Coaches only have one twenty second timeout, so it's best to use that one in the 4th quarter, with like 20 seconds left in the game.

A 'full timeout' is a time out long enough for the network that is broadcasting the game on TV to get an allotment of commercials in. This differs from a '20 second timeout' which is much shorter and usually the network does not show any commercials.
