Influential skipper Read was absent from the All Blacks' training session on Tuesday to spark fears over his availability for the mouth-watering showdown in Yokohama.
However, Hansen says Read was nursing a sore calf that New Zealand did not want to exacerbate in wet conditions.
"There is no issue. You didn't see him train because he was in the gym on the bike," Hansen said.
"He got a tight calf from the game the other day and we didn't want to put him out on a wet track."
Pressed on if Read will face England, Hansen replied: "Yeah, 100 per cent."
