It really depends how long the bearing has been bad for.
On mine the front bearing failed and was bad long enough that it wore a groove in the hub, which caused there to be a large amount of play. Without replacing it, it would have gone bad again quickly. However if caught fast enough, the hub may be fine. It's hard to know without actually having it off the car.
