Probably likely it will.

If you've ever saw the cam-like slots in the zoom barrels, Nikon uses a bunch of differing diameters and sizes of nylon rollers in them "for feel" and maybe 5 different diameters per slot.  Too large in diameter and it's too tight; Too small and it wobbles like what you've seen.  In time, I would expect it to loosen up a bit and the wobble to reappear.
