To check the wheel bearing, I jacked the front end off the ground, grabbed the top & bottom of the wheel and pushed/pulled on the top & bottom of the wheel. There wasn't a lot of play in the wheel.
When turning the wheel sharply from the start, there doesn't appear to be any fight from the steering wheel.
If the wheel bearing/speed sensor assembly wasn't $200, I'd just replace it to remove it from the list of possible causes.
