Grinding Noise

Car just started making a grinding noise the last few days all the sudden.

Only happens when making right hand turns, and the noise is from the left from. Im leaning towards the wheel bearing, but was looking for some opinions. Ill be looking at it tomorrow.

Whats the best way to check? Shaking the wheel and tire side to side for play? Or taking wheel off and seeing if there is play by moving the hub itself?

and if its not the bearing where should i look next?

car has 100k. control arms, ball joints, end links, tie rod ends, are all 2-3 months old. so its not those.
