Can't drag and drop sub-tasks on scrum board

On a scrum board for a sprint in Jira, in the "Work" view, I have a task with subtasks. The sub-tasks appear separately in a section named for the parent task. The tasks appear in the "In Progress" lane, but I can't drag and drop them to either "To Do" or "Done". I have another task that has subtasks which appear the same way but I can drag and drop them with no problem. When I compare the parent and sub-tasks, all fields seem relatively similar. What am I doing wrong?

Note: The task and sub-tasks I can't drag and drop are in a project that was not orginally part of the sprint, but was added after it started. Is this a bug?
