I have my rear wheel off so I checked the bearings. I'm easily able to turn the two on the sprocket side by hand. But the one on the rotor side doesn't want to turn.

Should I be able to get the bearing to turn with my hand - or does it need more force that a turning wheel will give? Does the bearing need to be replaced?

Thanks! Mark

Yes.
