Wrists are not the problem here brah
Your back holds the weight, your hands just balance it. You tighten your wrists, this happens again, maybe next time you injure your shoulder. Gotta build up that upper back (and back in general). Some kind of horizontal rowing with your elbows flared (build your mid/lower traps) and practice keeping your back locked with shit like stiff leg deads
