Can I add story points to Stories in an active sprint?

During the sprint planning, we missed adding story points to a couple of stories planned for the sprint. When we started the sprint, those particular stories have zero story points.

Now, we're trying to add the story points, even though the sprint is already halfway finished. But, I don't seem to see way to actually add them.

Is this possible, and if so, where would I need to edit the issue to add them?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Actually, I figured out a bit of a brute force solution. Just move the story out of the sprint, edit the story points, and move it back in. JIRA will throw some warnings, but at least it seems to work. No idea if this screws up burndown charts or anything, but it seems to be ok.
