Replacement for High Pulls?

Due to shoulder issues I cannot perform high pulls. I cannot drop the bar between reps (no bumper plates at my gym), and holding on to the bar on the way down is not an option. Any suggestions for what I can replace the high pull with?

Low pulls. Speed deadlifts. Power cleans.

Maybe cheat rows with a hold at the peak for back. It’s hard to replicate the explosive hip extension from the high pull on another lift though, besides maybe power cleans as noted above.
