Default Weightlifting with a broken wrist (old injury)?

I have been trying to learn and work on the snatch and the clean but I have an old injury in my wrist that prevents me from getting into the rack position (avascular necrosis of the navicular bone) I can do power cleans and catch in the press positionwith 205# but I can't get the wrist to bend backwards to the rack position. Are there any suggestions about getting flexible enough to rack the weight, keeping in mind that my wrist does work normally?

Thanks for your input,
