Default Did i toast my hub/bearing?

I had to change my steering knuckle for something on my z/28.

The hub/bearing was seized on very tightly. I whacked it with a hammer on the back a couple times and the sides to get it out. I didnt hit the actualy rotating assembly but i did hit the housing. Now, when i turn the hub, the thing sticks in position. It won't freely rotate anymore. Did i destroy the thing? I would hate to have to buy another.

Anything I can do? Should i try to mount it on the new knuckle and see what happens or should i just get a new one?
