Is there any way in Nimble to generate Thumbnails For Live and VOD streams, which can be displayed to clients?

This is a feature set from our wishlist and this will include Nimble Streamer and WMSPanel UI so it's planned for some later time.

I am wondering has this option made it road map level yet?

Unfortunatly, it doesn't implemented yet.
You can generate thumbnails using ffmpeg, for example: ffmpeg -i sample.mp4 -ss 0:01:30 -vframes 1 thumb.png will make thumbnail from frame at 0:1:30 position.

Any idea if and when it'll come?

It still planned, you may expect it for live streams in next few months, but we can't provide ETA for VOD content.

Is this feature already ready for VOD Streams?

I would like to use it for automatic Thumbnail generation for the Splashcreen of Video Players.
