I really like clean variations, man. Especially hang cleans. But that's another story, just wanted to put that out there.

More than cleans, I do a lot of BJJ and boxing, and it seems like my wrists and/or hands are banged up more often than not. Any suggestions?

My ideas were to either take some time away from cleans to work on strength and mobility in my hands or to find some substitute and stop doing cleans (if I have to choose boxing/BJJ or cleans, I'm gonna choose boxing/BJJ).

What do you guys think? Any way around it? Thanks.

Power snatches. You develop the same explosive hip drive without the flexibility or range of motion issues associated with cleans.
