      No problem to re-estimate during the sprint planning. It happens all
      the time as a PO clarifies user stories and negotiates the sprint
      backlog.

      When the sprint planning is over, the sprint backlog has been
      committed to and the sprint has started, that is the moment to freeze
      your story point estimates, for reasons already pointed out (estimates
      become less valuable for predictions if adjusted with knowledge not
      normally known during the estimation process).
