Default Wheel bearing or CV joint

When I drive slowly I hear a slight grinding coming from my left front wheel. At faster speeds it turns into more of a "wirrrr." When I turn it will sometimes go away. Even sometimes when I drive straight the sound will not occur. However once I turn either way it will begin again.

I am unclear if it is the wheel bearing or the CV joint. As turning affects the sound I would lean towards CV but do not know. I have jacked it up and shaken the wheel and there does not appear to be any lateral play. Again leading me to the CV joint. But from the things I have read I am just unsure. Is there any more diagnoses I can do to narrow it down?
