Since your car uses a "Serpentine Belt" (one belt that drives everything) I would not recommend trying to drive it at all. If the belt comes off or gets damaged by the messed up bearing, you will lose Power Steering (difficult to turn the wheel), the Alternator (the battery will run down), and most importantly, the Water Pump will not work and cause the engine to overheat. There is no cheap short-cut. You need to fix it fast if you want to drive it.
