space-track.org lists the decay epoch as 2017-02-22 0:00:00 -- note this is not strictly the re-entry time but perhaps gives us an approximate window?
I do not understand the material very well. It appears for large objects they will calculate a time-and-impact prediction as things become more certain but perhaps poor Bayi-Kepu-Weixing-1 may not rate as it doesn't pose a hazard.
I don't even know if it would be visible during re-entry given the speed?
