Potentially: Uveitis is common with a few autoimmune disease. Certain ones also cause arthritis with uveitis. If it causes arthritis in the wrist, it may be related. However, a lot of things can cause clicking in the wrist (past trauma/injury, carpal tunnel problems, osteoarthritis). It may be related, but not for certain.

Not related: Just a clicking in the wrist would be unlikely to be related to uveitis.
