I wouldn't worry too much. [In reply to] Can't Post

The possibility of Sauron allying with Smaug was a major theme of Tolkien's essay "The Quest of Erebor," which Peter Jackson has referenced through the short version found in Appendix A of LotR. In Tolkien's The Hobbit, the Council's attack on Dol Guldur ruined any immediate chance of such an alliance while Smaug's death at Lake-town eliminated the possibility forever.

In the films, the two events are taking place much closer together, but I don't think that this makes any difference. Smaug will still be dead before the Battle of Five Armies.
