Usually, it takes coaches a quarter, sometimes a half to decipher whether a certain player is on that night. But when it comes to Trail Blazers forward Gerald Wallace, coach Nate McMillan says he knows long before the game starts.

All it takes is one look.

"I know when he doesn't have it," McMillan said. "I can see it when he walks in. He's slow. He's sitting down. He's kind of relaxed, not moving around as much. And he will look at me, and I will look at him. And I know. I've been able to recognize it."
