Very hard to check for play in the wheel by hand...... I had a similar issue.
Jacked it up tried to check for play with the tire on (had none). Then checked rotor for movement by hand (had none). Eventually took the hub assembly out and the bearing and wham, 3 worn out ***** inside the bearing.
Just because you can move it by hand, doesnt mean your 3000lb front end wont shift it a few cm's when cornering.
Best way to check without taking it out is the sway test at about 15-20 mph.
