Default How to check for worn wheel bearing?

I was just wondering if there was any way to check to see if my wheel bearing is bad? I've have some noises coming from the driver side rear wheel when I make sharp right turns at slightly higher speeds. I know I need new rotors but I'm not sure if its them making the noise or possible the bearing.

Thanks,
-Russ

Jack up the car, make sure the handbrake is released, put a hand on the top and bottom of the wheel and shake it back and forth. If it moves, you have some bearing wear and should replace it. It will likely not move very much at all. Any movement is grounds for replacement.
