  Yup, just put it in gear and let it idle.

  I don't see any reason where this is any special case.  I remember
when I saw my first rotor that DIDN'T have the hub as an integral part.
You don't have to press the bearings out to turn them either.  In fact the
lathe tools are designed to work with the bearing races in the hub.  Of
course it just hit me that if you've got a roller bearing in there then that
probably WOULD need to come out.  ;-)
