Crankshaft Play

Is it okay for there to be slight side-to-side play in the crankshaft? There is no up and down play. I don't suspect anything is wrong, but while I had the bike apart, I checked it and wanted to verify whether this was okay or not.

Thank you.

my handy clymer manual says you should have no more than .30-.55 mm (.012-.022in.) freeplay on the side clearance beween the crankshaft and connecting rod. if its any more than .02 in. then it needs to be replaced
