I'd recommend changing sprint ceremony day if feasible. The team member in question will only have to catch up on a day's work of the rest of the team instead of catching up on the whole user story discussion and explanation, retrospective, task decomposition, etc.


You cannot commit for someone else.

So check with the customer. It will probably have an impact on other planned meetings (sprint review, retrospective, ...) and if it is OK with him, change the day. Explain why you want to change the day. It is always better to have the entire team on board for the planning meeting.
