No, don't use straps. They are to make up for lack of grip rather then wrist pain.

I would think not rotating your hand would be the best thing. You should probably avoid barbell upright rows. Barbell curls could be a problem too. You could do wrist curls and extensions and maybe some sort of grip exercise. Just 1 set each though.

A couple of things on wrists. When doing curls, some trainers have their trainees flex the wrists back, grab the bar, and concentrate on NOT curling the wrist while doing the movement with the biceps. It keeps the wrists out of the movement and reduces the wrists greatly. Also, as Ironman touched on somewhat, don't go to narrow with your grip for rows (all of them) or close grip benches. Too narrow puts a pretty great angle between the forearm and hand, and can cause problemsA shoulder width or somewhat wider grip can alleviate this.
