Default shift fork gets loose when car is in stop and go traffic?

I just noticed this happening in the past couple of months. When I'm driving around the city, normal stop and go traffic (not rush hour, ride your clutch for 2 feet then stop, repeat for the next 4 blocks ) The clutch pedal would develop sort of a clunk near the bottom of its travel. I can half hear/half feel it whenever I shift into any gear from neutral, but especially in first and second if that helps any. When I opened my hood up and checked the slave cylinder/clutch fork, I found I could easily wiggle the clutch fork from side to side when that starts to happens.

When the car has been sitting overnight or I'm driving on the highway, I don't have this problem.

I've also noticed I would have to rev the engine about 500rpms higher than I would just to start from a complete stop. It used to be that I could easily get the car rolling with around 1100rpms, now I found I would have to blip the gas a little more to around 1500-1750rpms to get it rolling smoothly.

What could be causing this? normal clutch wear? slave cylinder? air in the hydraulic clutch?

I'm running an ACT street clutch (push style) and 14lb flywheel for the past 15k miles and 2 1/2 years. The last year mated to a turbo engine (ej205).

update: should there be any play in the slave cylinder piston? I wiggled the shift fork again today, and the the rod coming from the slave cylinder moves along with it...
