lift the car up (safely) and turn the steering wheel to the right (position it similar to the way you would normally turn when the knocking occurs and see if anything hits the wheel

I would take it in. A few things it could be... BEARINGS, BALL JOINTS... improperly tightened lug nut(s)

But for sure get it checked out, anything with front end suspension / steering, you should be very pro-active with. No need to have a front tire fall off when turning...

(knock , knock sound is like a pop, pop sound of a ball joint popping out slightly and back in when under stress.. )

That is true you can lift the car and rotate the wheel by your hand and check if still you can hear a noise or not.
